We have lots of Food Folktale Stories! Stone Soup, The Magic Porridge Pot, The Gingerbread Boy, Anansi and the Hot Bean Soup, Goldilocks, or Anansi and the Tiger's Soup.
1. Students enjoy a paper-cutting story that involves food! For example, Valerie cuts out Anansi while she tells the Hot Bean soup story.
2. Students explore and identify a variety of symmetrical objects.
3. We discuss "Character, Problem, Solution" and identify these elements in a familiar folktale such as "Goldilocks."
4.. Students use their art skills to create their own symmetrical food object for their folktale. Or, younger students use the food stickers that we mail you to create their story.
5. We enjoy a second food folktale using a different type of storytelling method such as Draw and Tell, or Sign Language or Tangrams.
6.. Students begin creating their own food folktale using this second writing method.
