Recount Folktales Mentor Texts- 2nd Grade RL.2.2 & 3rd Grade RL.3.2


Recount Folktales Mentor Texts – 2nd Grade & 3rd Grade

⭐️Standards-based lessons using mentor texts. This unit is focused on 2nd and 3rd grade Common Core standards RL.2.2 and RL.3.2 recount folktales from diverse cultures, and determine their central message, lesson, or moral.


⭐️This unit is packed with one week of lesson plans, sticky notes teacher and student questions, anchor charts, student journal pages, rubrics, and activities.


⭐️If you do not use Common Core, this resource is still perfect for teaching, developing, or reinforcing recount folktales skills. Aligns with many state-specific standards, including TEKS and VA SOL.


The following mentor texts are necessary to teach the lessons:

  • Lon Po Po by Ed Young
  • The Legend of the Bluebonnet by Tomie dePaola
  • Rumplestiltskin by Paul O. Zelinsky


Literature is carefully selected for my units to include diverse cultures and experiences students can learn about and relate to.
