Fairy Tales

Fairytales or fables can be fun for kids of all ages. There really is lots you can do to extend the lesson. For example, if you are are reading Jack and the Beanstalk, talk about different types of beans. Plant beans and graph them as they grow. Experiment with light and no light. Younger kids can sort beans according to size, color, texture…, make bean and cheese quesadillas, act out the story, change the ending to the story, make a bean collage…

A fun activity is to write a family fairy tale involving all the members of your family. Create a story board. A storyboard will help us organize our thoughts by drawing pictures of the setting, characters, the problem, the attempts to solve the problem and the solution. Be sure to add color illustrations. Write a fractured fairy tale, they are my favorites!
