We read the book Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Then we charted the story elements. My students wrote on their dry erase boards while I "shared the pen" with another student at the front of the room.
This is the version we read. I found it at Barnes and Nobel in their discount book section. It is a large hard-back book with bright illustrations and text that is not too wordy. They have a handful of fairy tales like this in their discount books. I paid $6.99 for the book.
We made the apples by clipping the corners and rounding a 6X6 red square. We added a brown stem and a leaf. Then we painted glue on them and glittered them.
We wrote about what we would wish for if we had a magic apple.
It's been a crazy week. I defend my dissertation proposal tomorrow and I am a bridesmaid in a wedding this weekend, but when I get back to blogging at the end of it all I have some fun force and motion stuff to share.
