Fairy Tales Tell It Again!™ Read-Aloud Anthology

Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

A read-aloud anthology explores the fantasy worlds of fairy tales. Thirteen lessons challenge scholars to listen to and discuss a text, complete word work, then participate in extension activities—assessments and culminating activities gauge comprehension. The unit covers stories such as Sleeping Beauty, Hansel and Gretel, Jack and the Beanstock, and more!
