    fairy tales
    By Cathy

    Clip to ScrapBook
    Kids really enjoy listening to fairy tales followed by fractured fairy tales. The Frog Prince Continued by Jon Sciezca is hysterical. When we do these, we write our own fractured fairy tales, bringing the characters into modern day with modern problems. Kids can be really creative and funny when they write these. I usually have them begin with a story map to plan what the story will be about. They list which characters they'll use and what fairy tales they're from. Then, they choose a setting and a major problem. Before they begin writing, they get with a partner and share their story map so they can get even more (funny) ideas. Usually they get so wound up, they can't wait to actually write it. Good luck!
