    Jeff, Our 3rd grade team is also doing fairy tales in the month of September. We haven't done it before, but we've been brainstorming many ideas. We have a ton of ideas so if you give me your email address I can forward to "stuff" as we create it and/or come across it.

    Lon Po Po (Chinese Little Red Riding Hood) -- The kids will compare and contrast the traditional story to this story. Then we're going to have them make puppets from paper bags and do a scene from the story.

    The Three Javelinas - Great story, especially if you live in the desert as we do in Arizona. :-) Then we'll read the "True Story of the 3 Little Pigs" which is a story told from the wolf's perspective. Then the kiddos will choose another story to write from the antaganist's (sp?) point of view. These are fabulous to read!

    Jolly Postman - This is a Chris Van Allsburg book so I think we're going to do literature circles with it.

    You could choose any fairy tale and find many, many different versions. Cinderella is also a good one. In our (limited) library, we have quite a few copies of different Cinderella stories.

    We're also going to have the students write their own fairy tales. We're going to have them create maps of fairy tale land. We're trying to integrate. Although I've rambled on and on, there's more I can give you since we've got a general map of the month. Like I said, email me.
