Writer's Workshop

  • This week, we will spend some time exploring Folk Tales (Myths, Fables, Legends, Fairy Tales) from various cultures where we will compare and contrast common themes and common elements. We will then have some time to create our own myth. This will be a fun writing activity to share with the class!
