    Hi Mel,
    Every year at the beginning of the year I do a fairy tale unit with my fourth graders. It's a nice way to ease them into the year. We talk about characteristics of fairy tales, and read different ones checked out from the library. I also like to get a bunch of different versions of fairy tales- Cinderella is an easy one. We do wanted posters. Like Wanted: the big bad wolf
    For: destroying pigs' houses
    By: The Three little pigs...etc etc. They draw a picture etc.
    Then we write a fairy tale of our own. I let them choose if they want to come up with their own idea or put a spin on an existing fairy tale. like: Cinderella as told by the glass slipper

    Hope this helps a little
