February 26th is Tell a Fairy Tale Day! To learn more about fairy tales and their history, check out Britannica School’s articles by searching “folktale” and “fairy tale“. Fairy tales have been around for a very long time, and classic tales such as Little Red Riding Hood and Goldilocks and the Three Bears have been reimagined over the years, bringing more opportunities for creativity and learning. Whether your students are learning about and reading fairy tales, creating new stories or their own versions of these classic tales, or using fairy tales in other subject areas, the LRC has got you covered.
Check out some of our fairy tale STEM kits and books, classic and modern fairy tale books in both English and French, interactive storytelling kits with puppets and figures, and teacher resources in the bookshelf below:
There are many fairy tales available as e-books on Tumblebooks as well. To find these books, click and search by subject “fairy tales”.
You can also find videos about fairy tales, like Little Red and the Very Hungry Lion with Tamara Taylor, a modern-day fairy tale read on Curio, or How to Write a Fairy Story on Learn360 for some inspiration for writing your own.
Visit your school library professional for more resources and don’t hesitate to contact us at LRC@hcdsb.org if you have any questions.
