*You need to download the file to play.
This game is for the second cycle of Primary Education.
It consists of guessing the title of the tale that a given text (extracted from a fairy tale) is talking about.
To do this activity is necessary to work first on all the tales we have been posted in our blog because some of these stories are fairy tales but others are invented stories.
The tales this game work on are: “Mulan and Hercules”, “Goldilocks and the three bears”, “The three little pigs”, “Little Red Riding Hood”, “The naughty moon”, “The Penguin who felt cold a lot”, “Cinderella”, “Jack and the magic beans”, “The penguin” and “The ugly duckling”.
Here there are some sources, where you can find the stories to work on them. Especially, it is necessary to work on those which are not fairy tales, such as: “The naughty moon”, “the Penguin who felt cold a lot”, “Mulan and Hercules” and “The Penguin”.
This last one, “The penguin” is thanks to Ángela González and Carla Martin, two students from Colegio San Gregorio in Aguilar de Campoo (Palencia, Spain), who wrote and recorded this story, and also thanks to their teacher, @javiramossancha, who made it possible.

5. Writing poetry. Get inspiration from an image. (By Pablo)
Encourage your students to find a picture that means something to them and tell them to write a poem about it. You can tell them to work in groups and if they are very young it does not need to rhyme at all. This technique is really useful to help children to find a topic to write about.
You can use paint or more sophisticated softwares like photoshop or gimp to tell them to write the text on the image as in the example you will find bellow.
