First Graders Learn About Folktales

The First Graders at Central School had several high school students from Mr. Martin’s first period class read with them. They had been focusing on the literary genre of folktales in their CKLA (Core Knowledge Language Arts) Unit.
The high school students read different variations of Cinderella, Tom Thumb, Little Red Riding Hood, and many other folktales that were in our library.  After reading books with the high schoolers, the first grade students went back to their classrooms to create their own Cinderella Castles using building blocks. It was great having older students spend time with the first graders of Central School.
