iPad Lesson- Fairy Tale Book

Step 2 - Planning Instruction


Student Background Knowledge

  • Prior to this lesson, students will need to have an understanding of Reading: Literature Standard 3: Analyze how complex characters (e.g., those with multiple or conflicting motivations) develop over the course of a text, interact with other characters, and advance the plot or develop the theme.
  • Prior to this lesson, we read some Fairy Tales and go over theme and characters. Students will need this background to write their version of a Fairy Tale. We also use this time to go over how children's stories are structured.

Strategies for Diverse Learners

  • Teacher can provide written instructions
