Reflection: Lesson Planning Folktale, folktale...chant, chant, chant!: Introducing Multi-sensory Methods to Recount Folktales - Section 2: Enroll Students Into Learning

 

In this lesson of my Folktale Unit for Grade 3, you'll see that students are working on two major tasks: 1) identifying the components of a folktale; and 2) beginning to work on determining the lesson of a folktale.

Something important you'll notice in this lesson is that I incorporate the use of a multi-sensory strategy (a class chant called the "Folktale Chant") to help student remember the components of a folktale.  All of our classrooms come with kinesthetic learners, visual learners, and auditory learners, and this chant helps target all three!  And, the other great thing about this chant is it helps students begin to take ownership of their learning!  Instead of me telling them the components, they begin to tell me what the components are-and are able to identify them on their own.  This is the step toward independence that I'm looking for from my students in this lesson!
