Understanding Fairy Tales Old and New

Understanding Fairy Tales Old and New is a collection of digital resources that zero in on three different English Language Arts curriculum standards for grades 3, 4, and 5 that address characters’ traits and motivations in works of literature. These resources focus around modern retellings of old stories and fairy tales that may be familiar to learners. Included in this collection are videos for students, print outs of the original tales, as well as “Guided Viewing” videos designed to help parents talk about these English Language Arts concepts with their children. Check out the support materials at the bottom of each video for more ideas and activities to strengthen students' learning.
