This week we started a new unit in reading.  We are learning about folktales!  We first learned about 5 different kinds of folktales using the chart below.

**Quiz your child on the characteristics of each type of folktale!**
We read several stories this week and took notes on the characteristics we noticed. Then, we decided what type of folktale they were.
These are a few of the stories we read:
Little Red Riding Hood
The Hare and the Tortoise
The Fox and the Stork
Tug of War
Buffalo Calf Woman
The Legend of the Bluebonnet
**Ask your child what kind of folktale each of these stories represents!**
Next week we will read different versions of folktales and compare them to the folktales we have already learned about.
