Fairy Tale Chart

During our fairy tales unit, we always record the elements that make each story we've read a fairy tale and post them on a chart until the end of the unit. We read diff. Cinderellas too. The children must venn diagram two of them for a compare/contrast during the unit.
For tall tales, after reading a story, the children record in their literacy logs what events made the story tall and also record several that could happen in real life. (The real life events are much harder to find.) At the end of the unit, we culminate with writing our own tall tales, of course, beginning with a web where we map out the tall events that will occur, adding details when we write the stories. All is modeled first, of course. There are a few Reader's Theater pieces on tall tales that are fun to read during this unit as well. Luckily, my basal has one, but if you ask around on here, I bet someone will know a book or website where you can get your hands on one!
