Description: This game is designed to consolidate children’s knowledge of some well-known folk tales and increase their literacy skills. The stories we used are: Goldilocks and the Three Bears; The Three Billy Goats Gruff; Buri and the Marrow; The Elves and the Shoemaker; The Little Red Hen and the Grains of Wheat.

Learning Outcomes: Pupils will be able to define and describe the selected folk tales and identify the key themes, characters, and settings.

If you are a subscriber to the Collaborative Learning library (£110 membership with a FREE PENpal with labels and software), then you can download the pdf free of charge and print it out. But frankly, it is cheaper to buy the pack: all prints are made on cards which are longer lasting than photocopying paper. The cards are sound enabled for PENpal adding an extra dimension of narration, in English and other languages. All pictures are illustrated by professional artists. Game boards are laminated. Playing cards are perforated to give each a square edge.  

The whole package not only looks highly professional, but will last much longer. Every component is stored in an accompanying sealable plastic bag for easy retrievability. 

Each activity can be found in other languages using shared audio files for PENpal. So a Polish teacher, or Polish speaking Buddy, or a Polish EAL coordinator can translate key words and rules in Polish, and upload their version for others to share with the FREE ShareLINK software that comes with PENpal. If you have bought the activity you can also play it in Polish or any other language. Click here to find out more about ShareLINK.
