Fairy Tales & Fables Stations with 2nd Grade

This week at the RBE Library, 2nd graders came to the library to read, think about, and do some fun stations about Fairy Tales & Fables.

The students rotated between 3 stations over the course of 45 minutes. At each station they got to watch a video of me reading the book and look at the book during the video. They also completed 1 of 3 activities at each station that correlated with their Reading TEKS: a Venn Diagram over a Fractured Fairy Tale and the original story, identifying the moral lesson in a Fable, and identifying the story elements from a Fractured Fairy Tale (Setting, Characters, Problem, & Solution).
