Fairy Tales Come to Life at Harley Avenue


Throughout the school year, students in Ms. Colmone’s first-grade class at Harley Avenue Primary School have engaged in a series of writer’s workshops. For their final project, students studied fairy tales and were asked to write their own inventive story. As a celebration of this final unit, students invited their parents to attend a special writer’s celebration, during which they read portions of their creative stories.
Fairy tales ranged from “Three Little Rats and the Big Vacuum” to “Two Little Dragons and One Big Knight.” The students read their tales with enthusiasm, drawing smiles and laughter from the crowd. At the conclusion of all presentations, Ms. Colmone’s class acted out the famous fairy tale “The Three Little Pigs.”
