Give beginning readers a boost with this whimsical, easy-to-read play based on the classic fairy tale! Features rhyme, repetition, and predictable language to help children build vocabulary and become confident, fluent readers. Includes three great reproducibles:
• a read-aloud checklist
• a story map (characters, setting(s), problem, solution)
• a story scroll (beginning, middle, end)
Grades K - 2
Identify Story ElementsAfter reading the play, review it with children, and define and identify the characters, plot, setting(s), and problems and solutions. Provide scaffolding prompts such as: “I’m thinking of the setting where Cinderella dropped her slipper” that provide less scaffolding such as:• Who is the play about?• Where does the play take place?• What were the characters doing?• What happened?Provide children with copies of the Story Map graphic organizer (page 11) and let them explore story elements further through words and pictures.
