First Grade Fairy Tales


First graders are learning some of the characteristics of fairy tales. Today's class brainstormed this list based on James Marshall's version of The Three Little Pigs:

Start with "once upon a time"

Have magic in them

Have good and bad characters

Main character has a problem to solve

Things come in 3s

Have happy endings

We'll be sharing more fairy tales in the next few weeks, and we'll see if every story has every one of these characteristics...does a story have to have all of these things to be a fairy tale?
