This month for our Poppins Book Theme we are reading Folk Tales. Not Fairy Tales, Folk Tales. Do you know the difference? I didn’t until this month! A Fairy Tale is a short story that is usually fantasy, escaping to another reality and then returning to the normal world. They will include the fairy godmothers and wicked witches. Now when you read a Folk Tale, you are reading a story that has been passed down from generation to generation, usually orally. They are usually trying to teach the listeners something.
For our Folk Tale of the month, we are going to be reading Stone Soup. There are many different versions of this story (classic folk tale), but the same basic story line. We have one book that we rented from the library, and we are going to read another version on the tablet. We will then be having some fun with different activities that I am “pinning” on my Stone Soup Pinterest Board.
We will be playing around with other books too…I couldn’t just pick one! But this will be our main focus.
Don’t forget to hop on over to visit Jill at Enchanted Homeschooling Mom for the new lapbooking pieces for the month of May.
I hope you will join us and read a good folk tale with your children this month! Check back on the 26th to see what we have done and link up yours too! In the meantime, go check out these other lovely blogs who will be hosting the Poppins Book Nook also!
