Why is it important to still teach and read fairy tales to children?

Fairy Tales are an important literacy resource of literacy lessons as they are a springboard to teaching children all about story elements, author’s purpose, text to self connection, reflecting on characters’ behaviors, character traits and identifying the moral of the story! I find using fairy tales as mentor texts invaluable in terms of learning about the different story elements and also highlighting what engaging writing looks like.

Fairy tales offer a plethora of opportunities to discuss fairy tale characters, plot, setting, problem, conflict, resolution and character traits.
