Genre for January: Folktales and Fairytales
In Literature, a genre is a style of writing. This month,
the Media Center will feature Folktales and Fairytales .This genre began as an
oral tradition, being told or acted out from one generation to the next. These
folktales or fairytales usually included talking animals, magic, and/or mythical creatures
such as trolls, giants, or fairy godmothers. Later, these oral tales were collected and written
down for all to read. Stop by the Media Center and look for your favorite fairytale and
"check" it out! Also, listen for the "Plot of the Day" on the Morning Show and turn in your guess!
