Once Upon a Fairy Tale & a Give Away!

Friends~I had so much Fun Friday getting ready for my Fairy Tale unit.  Check out my door!
I did  a beanstalk down the side and then a yellow braid of paper for Rapunzel's hair.  We played Guess that Fairy today and and made leaves for our beanstalk with our favorite fairy tales elements.  I even added a castle with the elements that we studied.  (Don't tell the Fire Marshall on me!) 

This is the leaf that we used to illustrate our favorite element on.  They turned out pretty cute and it was a great way to assess their prior knowledge about fairy tales.

  Be sure to preview my Once Upon a Time Fairy Tale unit Too!
  You will find my Guess that Fairy Tale game included in that 56 page download.  My kiddos really loved it and it was another way to assess prior knowledge!

Tomorrow we will be reading I'll Read to You, You Read to ME Fairy Tales.

 My students will be working with our Easy Speak Microphone from Learning Resources. We have been using it a ton in class for reading poetry.  My students have gotten so good at it they are even uploading to our classroom website.  This little baby is so great.  It requires no batteries and can record up to 4 hours.

Check out a video of my student reading poetry with the Easy Speak!
We use it for math facts, spelling words, and vocabulary too!  The uses are endless!

I am so excited to announce that Learning Resources is allowing me to give away one of these fun microphones to a lucky Schroeder Page follower!
