The Folktales Unit contains an eclectic mix of some of the world's most beloved stories as well as several which are more obscure. Some tales, such as Rumpelstiltskin, are well-known around the world, and several others share common characteristics and themes.

Readers Theatre is a unique and fresh way of introducing students to a number of delightful plays that have been passed down from generation to generation for centuries. They can also serve as a useful tool for developing a student's oral reading and comprehension skills. Readers Theatre calls upon the students to utilize their voices, facial expressions, and hand gestures to interpret the characters in the scripts. The focus is on reading and interpreting the text, not "memory work". 

Creative Task Cards have been developed for independent learning.
