Little Red and Brother Wolf

1. Main Character of the Story


Vocabulary – Folktale — Character — Plot — Setting

Kagan numbered heads for vocabulary.














Story tell the Traditional Tale of Little Red Riding Hood.

Sing the Character Song. [Main Character]

Beginning – Middle – End Game with Wolf Puppet [plot]

Higher Order Thinking – how are the two wolves different. Describe the character of each wolf.

Reflect: Pick one of the stories.  If you switched the character of the Big Bad Wolf with Brother Wolf , would that change the ending of the story? How would it change the ending of the story?
