This site with ways to teach fairy tales gives me an idea. It would be fun to make the theme for this year's summer camp at school Fairy Tales. I think we could work in lots of different activities to still teach curriculum-related materials.
SAVEDHYB This is a fun activity to compare/contrast the Big Bad Wolf character in the fairy tales, "Little Red Riding Hood" & "The Three Little Pigs". You can also use the Wanted Poster for any fairy tale villain you are reading about with your class.

These 60 new kids writing ideas for students ages 7-14 will set them off on an adventure on the page. Students can consider important issues such as the right thing to do with a lost wallet or the qualities necessary in a good friend. They can also get imaginative with prompts asking them to write a sequel to a fairy tale or a story about life on a pirate ship
