Engage in comprehension in a fun and supported way as you read Hansel and Gretel with your kindergarten and first graders. They'll practice retelling, learning about characters, and determining the theme or lesson. Supporting vocabulary or word wall cards help to support reading and writing activities for this fun story. We always love reading this story around holiday or Christmas time when we are learning all about Gingerbread and winter activities, but it can also be used all year long! This pack is a great companion to reading Hansel and Gretel. Most of the materials pair well with the version with a witch, however, the retelling mat and vocab pages also have an old woman. The old woman could also be used as the step mother if you read that version of the story when you do the retelling.
