Fairy Tale Resources

Develop speech, language, comprehension and confidence in reading with our Fairy Tale resources!

Fairy tales are great for helping children understand sequence of events, becoming familiar with key characters, settings and items within the story. Retelling the stories builds fluency and confidence in word reading, motivating children to read independently as their vocabulary increases.  

The text included in these resources are available in English, but you can edit the words to use these resources in any language.

Have some fun retelling the stories by asking children to record the audio and taking their own photos to personalise learning, then practice learning the key vocabluary with the card matching activites in Special Words Plus.
