Teaching With Text Sets in Grade 3: Fairy Tales

Text sets are collections of resources designed to support learning. Focusing on a concept or topic, a text-set collection often includes multiple genres such as books, e-resources, poetry, songs, photographs, and other types of text. In this post I outline a few possibilities for grade 3 with a focus on fairy tales. Specifically, there are texts for read aloud/shared reading, book club, illustrator studies, guided reading and independent/buddy reading.

Read Aloud/Shared Reading

from Domitila: A Cinderella Tale from the Mexican Tradition.
Note: Unlike interactive read alouds in grades K and 1, in grades 2 and higher, students need access to the text.  Therefore multiple copies of the text are needed. Usually I recommend that 8 additional copies are secured so that small groups of students can reread the texts and focus on sections of the texts. Copies of the reader's theater script and Jack and the Beanstalk by Roald Dahl are provided to every student.
