Second Graders Create a Folktale

The second graders at our school learned about folktales for the past two months in library class.  Ms. Amy Steinbauer, a school librarian student, guided them through this unit.  They discussed common motifs found in folktales, their significance, and how to identify them.  After their lesson, they proceeded to create their own class folktale.  They determined the details of their story, and then added illustrations.

After they were finished, they uploaded their story to the iPhone app Storykit to share with their family and friends.  Click on the links below to read as well as listen to their stories:
