[RL.1.5] - Identify characteristics of common types of stories, including folktales and fairy tales.


  • Fairy tale
    Narrative composed for children; includes elements of magic and magical folk such as fairies, elves, or goblins. See Traditional literature
  • Folktale
    Short narrative handed down through oral tradition, with various tellers and groups modifying it so that it acquires cumulative authorship. Most folktales eventually move from oral to written form. See Traditional literature.

    Analyze the structure of texts, including how specific sentences, paragraphs, and larger portions of a text relate to each other and the whole.
  • Reading Closely to Analyze Complex Texts in the Elementary Grades
  • Studying folktales
    For example, in a study of folktales as a genre, students listen to and read along with the teacher the traditional poem, “The Fox’s Foray,” noting the repetition, rhythm, and rhyme. After performing a choral reading of another version of the poem, “The Fox Went Out One Chilly Night,” they read more traditional tales featuring foxes and write opinion pieces about the character of the fox in the tales they have read.
  • Traditional literature
    Works that transmit a culture’s knowledge and beliefs from generation to generation; oral for much of a culture’s history but often eventually put into writing; includes poems, songs, myths, dramas, rituals, folk and fairy tales, fables, proverbs, and riddles.
