92,000 teachers use Gynzy
1,600,000 students use Gynzy
In this lesson, students will learn how to recount folktales. They will read folktales and use the ingredients (i.e.g, characters, setting, problem, beginning, middle, and end) to help them remember what happened.
Students will be able to recount folktales including key details.
Students will think of a story they are reading in class and tell a partner who the main characters are and the events that happen in the story. Explain why it is important to be able to recount stories.
Students will look at the "ingredients" of a story: characters, setting, problem, beginning, middle, and end. Discuss the characteristics in folktales, including that they are told orally and the characters can be animals or people.
Next, students will read The Crow and the Pitcher and classify the story elements. They will also read another folktale and determine the beginning, middle, and end.
Students will respond to ten questions in which they review the elements of a folktale and answer questions about "The Fox and the grapes".
Students will recall what they learned:
- What are the different elements of a story?
- What are folktales?
