The Welcome Story. This story is included as the opener for each day, so that kids become an "expert" storyteller of this story by the end of the week.
The Day's Story. Each day there is a fresh new folk tale to experience. The videos encourage both deep listening and call-and-response participation from the viewers.
After watching the Day's Story, kids add the main character's house to a map of The Fairy Tale Forest, so that by the end of the 5 days, kids have built a visual representation of where all these characters live in The Fairy Tale Forest.
Each day after putting the main character's house on the map, kids get to build the structure in 3-D!
A creative, hands-on art project to do with common art materials, inspired by the Day's Story.
Kids become authors and storytellers as they use their imagination to make their own stories spun off from the Day's Stories. The prompts have been used by K and up, though preschoolers could do the pre-writing retelling.
