Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform.

Writer’s Workshop: Fairy Tales



The students will work with a partner on a “scavenger hunt” for fairy tales.  They will use their personal Raz Kids account to look for fairy tales to read.  They will use a graphic organizer to review the stories and find/list the different components of fairy tales.  After learning the key characteristics of a fairy tale, the students will write their own fairy tale. This fairy tale will include at least four out of the seven key characteristics found in fairy tales.  According to the writing goals of the Common Core state standards, the students should be able to write narratives that include a sequence of events, characters’ thoughts and feelings as well as details to describe actions.  This lesson will occur over a course of several days. I will spend time during each Writer’s Workshop block to check in with each student to ensure that they are using their graphic organizer and knowledge of fairy tales to compose their own story.

Learning Targets: 
The students will know the characteristics of a fairy tale.
They will apply their knowledge of this genre by writing their own fairy tale.
