Rumplestiltskin! Chicken Little! Jack and the Beanstalk! The Bremen Town Musicians! What do these all have in common? They are all folktales! We are studying folktales in Reading Workshop now. We have learned that there are character types in folktales, like the hero, the villian, and the sidekick. Some of them have tricksters, like Foxy Loxy in the folktale Chicken Little. We also got to do readers' theater with folktales. Readers theater is when you act out the story and everyone gets to be a character. We loved it, because they were funny and fun!
This blog is maintained as a collaboration between all students and myself. Each week, one student has the classroom job of "Blogger". That student helps decide subjects for our posts, as well as writing one blog post about him/herself.
