Fairy Tales, Folktales, and Myths in the K-3 Classroom
Mary Kuechenmeister, Founder / President, Story Preservation Initiative

Level: Intermediate
Grades: Pre-K, K-5
This workshop introduces teachers to a project that brings timeless and imaginative fictional stories, including fairy tales, folklore, myths, and contemporary stories into the K-3 classroom. Story Preservation Initiative, working in collaboration with master storyteller Odds Bodkin, has designed a project for early elementary students that fosters literacy and social emotional learning. Odds audio recordings are supplemented with recommended teacher read-aloud books and standards-aligned projects, all designed to instill in kids a love of story, which translates in later years to a love of reading.
