folking good tales

Did a Folk Tales themed 2nd grade storytime some months back--we didn't have time for all of these things, but still wanted to share ideas.

Prop Story: “Bear and the Crow,” from Arnold Lobel’s Fables
*tell the story while putting on ridiculous outfit—need pot for head, sheet for coat, 2 paper bags for shoes*


Book 1: Clever Beatrice, Margaret Wiley, Heather Solomon (I love that this takes place in the Upper Penninsula, Michigan)

Prop Story: “The Emperor’s Dragon,” Handmade Tales: Stories to Make and Take,
D. de Las Casas


Book 2: Stone Soup, Marcia Brown (French tale)

Prop Story: “Joseph had an Overcoat,” Handmade Tales: Stories to Make and Take,
D. de Las Casas


Book 3: Anansi and the Magic Stick, Eric A. Kimmel (African tale)

Song/Movement:  Lummi Sticks w/African beat music (any)
