The Three Sillies LessonUsing Narration

Objective: students demonstrate narrative storytelling skills.

Jack is on a quest to find three very silly people.  This famous and quite funny folk tale delights students of all ages.    The lesson introduces three different styles of narrator voice and how the choice of style affects the dramatic impact (part of the third grade objectives).  Students also have the option of writing their own “silly.”   This lesson uses the included story "The Three Sillies" as retold by Karen Erickson.  This lesson is part of our recommended sequence in the Third Grade Curriculum.
