Language Arts 4/14-15

We started a new unit today!  For the remainder of the school year we will be studying myths, legends and folk tales.  We had new word wall words today.  They are: oral tradition, motif, archetype, trickster, enchanted

Then, we started talking about folk tales, myths, legends, and what role they have played in a culture. Then, we talked about folk take archetypes and motifs.  The notes are here:  Folktale notes

Finally, we watched one of Jim Henson’s Storyteller folk tales, and talked about which archetype it fit in, and what motifs it had.

Wednesday/ Thursday we will be doing independent study of folk tales, so if you have a book of folk tales at home that you like bring it for that class.
