Happy Halloween everyone! You may have noticed that I haven't been posting my weekly ELA units the past few weeks. That would be because I have been working on a Folktales MEGA unit! We have been reading and studying Folktales in 2nd grade for the past 3 weeks, particularly Tall Tales, Fairy Tales and Fables. I put all of the centers, graphic organizers, activities and resources together into one mega-pack! It has been such a fun three weeks since folktales are so much fun to read and talk about. Besides the resources in this pack I have also been using the iReading 8 in 1 Fables app on my iPad which my kiddos love. It costs $1.99 on iTunes.
It looks great projected on the SmartBoard and I love how it reads to you and includes a moral at the end of each story. You may have also seen these super cute, Fairy Tales floating around Pinterest lately. Scholastic Book Clubs has them in a Fractured Fairy Tale pack for $14 which I snagged for FREE using my points. They are GREAT to teach points of view or to compare and contrast similar tales.
If you have a subscription to Reading A to Z, We have also read several Tall Tales using their projectable book option (which takes up no copies, this make me very happy since we are on a strict copy budget this year). Reading A to Z has some really great resources and they are my go-to resource when I can't find a book I want for my literacy block.
(Sorry they're so tiny, but I can't find high quality image)
