    Yes I do teach fairy tales as a unit and in fact will be doing my unit in the next few months. I haven't looked through my "stuff" so I am not sure what I am doing this year as I like to change things a bit every year. Some things I do for the unit are....

    - create a character chart where we make a list of all the characters we read about and whether they are "good" or "evil" characters.

    - create a list of fairy tale words - I put on a chart for students to use in their writing.

    - we read quite a few stories that have different versions and then vote on which version we liked best.

    - for art I have them create a poster for their favorite story.

    - we usually write two stories. The first one is a retelling of a popular story like The three little pigs or Little Red Riding Hood. This I find helps some of the weaker students understand sequence better. Then I have them write their own story - this is always towards the end of the unit.

    - I also have a number of little books that I can photocopy and other materials that are fun to use.

    If you want, email me directly and when I make copies of all my things I'll be using I'll send you a care package as well.
