" Very good retelling combined with fun illustrations. " said.

"This is a collection of the familiar classic tales. It includes The Little Red Hen, The Three Little Pigs, The Three Bears, The Gingerbread Boy, The Three Little Kittens, and The Three Billy Goats Gruff. The audio is a nice addition that could be used in centers along side charts for students to identify folk tale characteristics.

I would use this as a genre study in the beginning of the school year because most students are familiar with the stories. The familiarity would create a commonality among the students and also would allow literacy elements to be clearer because they are not struggling with the plot and character knowledge. The focus would be on the tales elements of theme, setting, characters, and plot. As a class project we would create posters demonstrating story maps showing the beginning, middle, and end. Also, creating diagrams to compare and contrast a set of tales. For example, a good character, a bad character, and the moral, if any. As a class project, I would divide the class into groups and assign different tales. The groups could choose among different projects; like, create a "WANTED" poster of the bad character or create puppets to reenact the tale. Using the charts and diagrams comparing and contrasting the characteristics of these tales, the students would use a ruberic to create their own tale during independent writing. An illustration could go with their story for display of our study of folk tales.
