Diving Into Fairy Tales

Hello, Families!

When we return from vacation, we will be diving into fairy tales to prepare for our Fairy Tale Wax Museum on April 7th! We will spend our first week back exploring different fairy tales to help us decide on which fairy tale characters we'd like to be for the wax museum. Forms were sent home the week before vacation with more information about our unit. On the form, students are asked to list their top three character choices for the wax museum. These choices must be returned by Friday, March 10th. Students will be notified about which character they will portray on or before Friday so they have plenty of time to prepare at home and in class for our big day!

Need some inspiration? Here is a list of fairy tales your child might like to explore:


Alice in Wonderland 

Beauty and the Beast 

Chicken Little 


Goldilocks and the Three Bears 

Hansel and Gretel 

Jack and the Beanstalk 

Little Red Riding Hood 

Peter Pan 



Rip Van Winkle 



Sleeping Beauty 

Snow White 

The Boy Who Cried Wolf 

The Elves and the Shoemaker 

The Emperor’s New Clothes 

The Frog Prince 

The Gingerbread Man 

The Little Mermaid 

The Little Red Hen 

The Princess and the Pea 

The Three Billy Goats Gruff 

The Three Little Pigs 

The Ugly Duckling 


Tom Thumb

While almost all of these tales are available in our classroom, there are also lots of different versions of these stories in our school library as well as the Wiggin Memorial Library. Students are more than welcome to choose ANY main character from any fairy tale they have read before. Some may end up being different characters from the same fairy tale, so it is important for us to know which character they would like to be from the story. You can check out some of our fairy tale characters from past years by clicking here!

Enjoy the rest of your vacation!
