Reflection: Lesson Planning Trickster Tales Out of a Hat-Just Like That!: Writing the Folktale Genre in Grade 3 - Section 2: Enroll Students Into Learning

 

Thanks for checking out the fifth lesson in my folktale unit!  This lesson begins to move students toward writing their own folktales after learning so much about them through reading quite a few!  In this lesson, you’ll see I give the students some parameters, by asking them to choose components “out of a hat”, and this bit of guidance helps them stay focused and true to the folktale genre.  However, it’s so much fun to see what creative writing their minds are going to create!
