What we have been learning about!

3rd Grade Library Class has been working on:


Folktales are often stories of animals that act like humans, and that live in a world of wonder and magic. Most of these stories convey a message or moral to the reader, or explain something in a creative way. Folktales are often passed down and retold from generation to generation.

  1. Review  what is a Folktale.
  2. Read folktales.
  3. Using Story board: retell story.
  4. Using iPad: film the retelling of the story using the video on the camera.
  5. Then retell the story according to one of the scenarios on the short story version in either a Puppet Show OR News Cast Live from the Field.
