Key Lessons from Fairy Tales


Ages 4-8


What life lessons can fairy tales provide for our students?

Workshop Description:

“How do you choose a good friend?” “Why do some people seem mean?” “What makes us feel frustrated?” “Who can you trust?” are examples of inquiry questions in different fairy tales. Learn to develop student listening and problem-solving skills with each fairy tale. Inside each story, participants experience different perspectives. Using the inquiry method, teach students to work collaboratively in role towards a win/win solution. Strategies such as teacher in role, role on the wall, hot seating, generating questions and problem-solving support social and emotional learning (SEL) in each lesson. Experience this fun workshop and be equipped with strategies you can teach tomorrow.  Handout provided.
