Fairytales and Traditional Stories - Resources

Yesterday's workshop in the Teaching English to Young Learners was about Literacy and Reading skills. We talked a lot about using Fairy Tales and traditional stories as a source of literacy material which is usually already known to students in their mother tongue.
I've selected some great resources to help you plan your classes with these whimsical stories! Here we go!!

KizClub - Story Props

Our all-time favorite, Kizclub has a session entirely dedicated to Story Props! It means you can not only read stories such as The Fox and the CrowThe Three Bears and The Three Billy Goats Gruff, but also print story props for telling stories in class. Just fabulous!!
If you want to start with shorter texts, such as rhymes, you can also profit from the Nursery Rhymes session, in which you can find word families worksheets (for those who teach using Phonics), printable mini books and worksheets. It's a must-visit!


A resourceful site, DLTK-Kids has bunches of printable storybooks, story sequencing cards and activities. There's also a special section for Nursery Rhymes, with craft ideas, minibooks and more. The Fairy tales/ Classic Stories session is also worth a visit!


Do you need flashcards for storytelling and story sequencing? SparkleBox is the place to go! Loads of resources, not only regarding classic stories but also topic work. That section may give you some ideas on how to promote integrated work!!

Storyline Online

Last, but not least, here comes Storyline Online, a site where you find stories read by movie stars! Yes! That movie star may read to your students! Wow! What a thrill!!
