Yes, there is a national day for everything. Tomorrow is for fairy tales. Although some fairy tales have a dark history, a fairy tale, by definition is a children’s story about magical beings and lands. Taking that idea, what a great day to teach children about story telling!
Celebrate! Create a Tale!
Start with circle time. Tell the children about fairy tales and stories. Tell them they can make their own fairy tales. Start the story off with one sentence. Ask the children to add to it. Record the answers. At various time during the day, start the story again. Make sure to finish by the end of the day.
Print the story and copy it for each child. Leave some blank pages for them to add their own illustrations. Make sure to list all of their names as authors!!
Happy Tell a Fairy Tale Day!
