Welcome to the Fairy Tales Retold unit!

Little Red Riding Hood talking to the Wolf on the forest path to Granny’s house.
How would you tell your own version of your favorite fairytale? There’s a lot we can learn about classic stories by writing different versions of them. What did the other characters think, and why was the villain bad? What if the story took place in a big city or in outer space? What happens after the characters live happily ever after? These are the kinds of questions we’ll be exploring in this unit.
In this unit, you will:
  • See how we can make our own versions of classic stories
  • Read new versions of fairytales
  • Watching videos to help you understand what good readers and writers do
  • Reading and answering questions about literary and informational texts
  • Learning new academic words
In order to answer the essential question: How can we learn from a new point of view?
