Second graders at Glen Head School celebrated a Fairy Tale Ball. This enchanting interdisciplinary event culminated over a month of literary studies in folk and fairy tales as part of the English curriculum. It also combined many lessons in art and music.

As part of the English curriculum under the Common Core, the second graders focused on story elements including: settings, famous fairy tale lines, and characterization. Prior to the celebration, they were taught all about acrostic poems, character traits, repeating words, and happy endings.

In April parents, families, and friends were invited to the magical Fairy Tale Ball where their children dressed up as characters in literature to become part of their favorite fairy tales including Cinderella, Goldilocks and The Three Bears, The Three Little Pigs, and Jack and the Beanstalk!

During the celebration, the students read their creative stories and fairy tales to their families, showed them their fairy tale character posters, and sang fun songs.

In art class, students created artwork relating to the folk and fairy tale stories which were displayed outside their classrooms for everyone to see! Bravo to all of the second grade teachers who helped their students not only learn the wonders of fairy tales but engaged all of the parents and family members in attendance to a captivating Fairy Tale Ball Celebration! Go Vikings Go!
