Wrapping up Fairy Tales

Students shared the fairy tales they wrote with peers
Awesome conversation and feedback from peers on our individual fairy tales
This group talked for a long time and shared ideas on how
to extend each other's fairy tale
Students use story maps that they recorded while listening to
the fairy tales to help them retell the story to peers.
Specific compliments were delivered from peers without prompting!
Many students shared with as many peers as they could in the allotted time.
Castle covers for our favorite fairy tale story map
Skeleton story map: students could use words, phrases or sentences 
Directed drawing of castles was a hit
Each castle was unique and had it's own flare
Many illustrated characters on the inside covers
Fairy tale creation, story maps, reading and excitement = a recipe for a great wrap up
to our final unit in CKLA.
Students could sketch, write words, phrases or sentences to
jog their memory of the fairy tales.
