Sisters Grimm

With the major influx recently of comic book movies, and a constant return to traditional fairy tales for inspiration, we are beginning to see a major revival in classic stories.  Since the release of Shrek, Fairy Tales have become incredibly mainstream.

IMG_1678.JPGOne of our lit groups is currently reading a fairy tale adaptation entitled, The Sisters Grimm.  IMG_1679.JPGToday, we talked about what Fairy Tale characters they would like to see come up later on in the story.  Which characters would you like to see?

We also were introduced to a character that they were unfamiliar with… PUCK.  Sometimes known as Robin Goodfellow, from William Shakespears’ A Midsumer Night’s Dream.

Teaching gifted students is fantastic because at one, they demanded on learning more about PUCK and went straight to the laptop to research him!
