Fractured folktales make reading come alive. Everyone knows stories such as Pinocchio, and Jack and the Beanstalk. Twist them around, turn them on their heads, and you have something new and exciting that can stretch students' imaginations. 12 Fabulously Funny Folktale Plays features a dozen classic tales retold as wacky plays that can be read aloud in the classroom.

Fractured folktales are great for rainy days or anytime. Kids get a kick out them, and it's a great way to build reading confidence. What's more, performing these plays will help students with fluency, comprehension, and vocabulary development. These laugh-out-loud twists on favorite folktales include Jack and the Giant Sunflower, Claynocchio, The Prince Frog, Three Silly Goats Gruff, Queen Midas, and many more.

Each play is accompanied by a teacher's guide that includes a brief history and a plot summary of the original tales, a list of key vocabulary, and instant discussion starters and writing prompts, as well as vocabulary boosters.
