We started the week with a general study of fairy tales. I love Abby's anchor chart of the elements in a fairy tale. She also has some awesome ideas if you're looking for new ways to explore your favorite stories.
We also made crowns and magic wands to become royalty ourselves.
Yesterday we looked at the 3 Little Pigs and compared the original story to The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs by Jon Scieszka. They wrote about whether they believed the pigs or the wolf's story.
We explored the concept of magic and brainstormed stories with magical elements then wrote about what we would do if we had magic fairy dust. Guess which is the typical boy answer & the typical girl answer. ;)
We also used LaNesha's venn diagram from Another Day in First Grade to compare The 3 Little Pigs to Cinderella.
