Interrupting Chicken by David Ezra Stein

I have to confess I read this book to my fourth graders just for fun.  I did have them predict what would happen as we went along.  I pointed out the story structure had three bedtime stories that the father read to the child.  Many fairy tales and folktales have a pattern of three (three bears, three pigs, three goats, three wishes, etc.), and we had just studied the genre.

Here is a free printable graphic organizer for analyzing a fairy tale or creating a new one.

Interrupting Chicken is fun to read aloud...and isn't reading supposed to be fun?
