Common morals in fairytales/short stories such as the Lion and the Mouse by Eric Carle. Good exercise for reading other short-stories, maybe have the kids write on the anchor charts (helps with memory).
Great film shorts, adverts, and more to use in teaching, plus lesson ideas! I can already envision so many ways to use these clips and ideas to motivate and inspire my students and breathe new life into my writing and reading curriculum!
"Ormie" by Arc Productions - Fabulous little movie for teaching story elements, including plot . Fill in anchor chart with this short for character, setting, theme (all of which have been pretaught). USE SWB .
