Product Description

The duration of this unit depends on what you want to do with it! It can take as little as 1 week or up to 3 or more! There are so many mini-units you can do with this unit, and the final product can be written or extended with technology by making a photo story. The sky is the limit!

**Before teaching this unit students should already have an understanding of the writing process (brainstorming, prewriting, drafting, revising, and editing).***

Here is everything you will get with this jam-packed unit:
-4 pages of specific step-by-step instructions on how to use this unit
-What is a fractured fairy tale? 
-examples of characters from classic fairy tales
-examples of settings from classic fairy tales

-comprehensive list of 62 titles of fractured fairy tales for various classic versions such as Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Little Pigs, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Cinderella, The Princess and the Pea, Jack and the Beanstalk, Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel, and more! 
-story map graphic organizer (+exemplars) for both a classic version and a fractured version of a fairy tale
-flow chart graphic organizer (+exemplar) for students to list their sequence of events for their story (to be used for prewriting)
-mini-lesson on quotation marks

I have used this with my 2nd graders and they had a great time and learned a TON! This unit is perfect for the classroom that uses Writer's Workshop and integrates perfectly with reading and technology! And who doesn't like a good fairy tale?!
