TAKE HISTORY & FOLKLORE TO THE NEXT LEVEL!
Folktales are an amazing resource that can help students begin to learn about other cultures from an early age.
They also help to develop strong reading and comprehension skills, model positive character traits, and encourage young learners to discover a love of stories.
