Cinderella worksheets let you use picture books to address the standards. Use these ideas for your next genre study!
Ms. Sneed Searches for Cinderella Worksheets
Our favorite fourth grade teacher, Ms. Sneed, was in the middle of her Cinderella unit. Initially, her students compared Cinderella folktales and parody. Later they’d do some activities and writing. But now she wanted to tie her genre study to the standards. “My kids love these Cinderella picture books,” she thought. “But how can I use them for test prep?”
As usual, Ms. Sneed headed for Teachers pay Teachers. “Here it is,” she said. “Cinderella Worksheets – Reading Questions, Summary, Theme, and Characters.”
In the first set of worksheets, students answered questions. “I like the way this matches the standards,” Ms. Sneed thought. Kids will consider characters, plot, and setting.”
Ms. Sneed looked at the next set. For summarizing, kids used a story arc to map the story. Perfect!
Finding a Theme
Next, they found a theme. To do this, they considered how a character’s actions affected the outcome. “I love this,” said Ms. Sneed.
Analyzing Characters – Two Sets of Cinderella Worksheets
To analyze a character, students would name a character, determine whether they were good or evil, and explain.
Kids could also compare and contrast characters. “Hmm,” thought Ms. Sneed, “this would work well for late fourth or fifth grade.”
These Cinderella worksheets allow teachers to hit the standards – while reading short, familiar, and fun stories. Why don’t you try it?
