Twice-Told Tales: Classic Stories With Spin Off Versions eReader Book

$5.00

This Reader/Read Aloud (for read aloud or for kids to read on their own) is the culmination of over a dozen Book-Movie-Book writing projects (and downloadable booklets) that I have created for students.

 

Each “original” story is given with a “twice-told tale” following. The originals, of course, contain favorite characters in print and video today–Mowgli, Alice, Beauty, Peter Pan, Mulan, Dumbo, Cinderella, Scrooge, and more. The “twice-told tales” have new friends to meet–spin offs from another time and place–who have found themselves in similar situations as Mowgli, Alice, Peter Pan, etc.

 

Delightfully fun. Stories that are short enough for quick read alouds. Easy enough reads for middle schoolers to tackle on their own and upper level students to breeze through. And creativity that will spark your readers’ and listeners’ imaginations. (Who knows? Maybe they’ll ask you to help them write their own “twice-told tales” after reading these!).

This 270 page book contains twenty stories. Each story section contains an old illustration from the time of the original writing with a description of that illustration; the classic tale in modern language; and a twice-told tale (piggybacked off the classic tale).

After your purchase, you will be sent a PDF version of the book which can be read off of your tablet or e-reader.

Description

This Reader/Read Aloud (for read aloud or for kids to read on their own) is the culmination of over a dozen Book-Movie-Book writing projects (and downloadable booklets) that I have created for students. Each of my writing projects in all 100 books and products published by Character Ink Press has samples for students to see what their finished product may look like. In the case of Twice-Told Tale assignments, they have a sample of the “original” tale and a sample of a “piggybacked” tale. These samples are not just for learning how to write; they are amazingly entertaining, engaging, exciting stories to read also.

 

The result of all of those writing products, besides the writing downloads for homeschools and brick and mortar schools, was this creative set of tales. Each “original” story is given with a “twice-told tale” following. The originals, of course, contain favorite characters in print and video today–Mowgli, Alice, Beauty, Peter Pan, Mulan, Dumbo, Cinderella, Scrooge, and more. The “twice-told tales” have new friends to meet–spin offs from another time and place–who have found themselves in similar situations as Mowgli, Alice, Peter Pan, etc.
