About this teaching resource
Time for some shared reading of a fairy tale or a few. Bring these classic stories into your students' world, not via the screen but into their visualising minds!
What better way to share fairy tales with your students than through a class made big book!
Print and enlarge A4 to A3 copies of your choice of fairy tale; staple, bind, read, illustrate, reread
Illustrating the Story - Deep Comprehension Activity:
- Have your students visualise the fairy tale as you read the first 2-3 pages aloud.
Demonstrate illustrating, key word labelling and captioning a scene you have visualised.
- Have your students turn and talk to describe the scene they visualised.
- Offer small pieces of paper on which students can draw, label and caption the scene.
- Glue into the Big Book on the adjacent matching page.
- Extend: Have students work on another scene, or add illustrations to student version copies you've added to your classroom library
- Enable: provide more opportunity for oral rehearsal of visualised scenes, and chart some key words with the students to support labelling and captioning.
- Continue reading, visualising and illustrating over the next few lessons.
You'll soon have everyone living happily ever after.
Look for the mini-book version of the same fairy tale which is also available. Create individual copies for your students, or add a few copies to your classroom library. Create a basket/tub of fairy tales to add to your classroom library, no matter what age your readers.
