Little Red Riding Hood – Little Red is caring but easily distracted, which sometimes gets her into trouble! This timeless German fairy tale focuses on themes of honesty, kindness, and the importance of listening.   

Henny Penny – “The Sky is Falling!”, or is? This popular Danish fairy tale explores the consequences of fibbing, and themes of courage and forgiveness.  

Billy Goat’s Gruff – Based on a Norwegian fairy tale, this story is about three clever billy goats who outwit a mean troll that lives under the bridge they must cross. Students will explore themes of greed, sharing, and friendship!  

 

The Little Kolobok – Kolobok is a clever, round doughnut who one day comes to life, and on an adventure cunningly escapes every tricky situation! This Russian folk tale explores multiple character-building and moral lessons.   

 

Buri and the Karela – Based on Indian Folk Tale, this story focuses on the friendship of two very different characters who work together to solve a common problem. Themes of fairness, generosity, and honesty make this an excellent character education workshop! 

 

Odon the Giant – Based on a fairy tale from the Philipphines, this story is about a group of friends who put their talents and voices together to stand up to the mean Giant, Odon. This story explores themes of teamwork, conflict resolution, and bullying.
