Bring Your Own Tale

  1. For this center, have students retell a tale from their ancestry. You may want to tell your students to converse with their parents about a Family Tale that they can share with the class or in center groups.
  2. They should write down the tale, give it a title, and draw pictures for it.
  3. When all of the student are finsihed, have a class tale-telling party!
