Here you will find the text and audio files for well over tales. Many of the linked lesson plans refer to specific tales, but can be adapted for use with a range of tales from the Lit2Go collection. The majority of linked plans also assume the students will be accessing text versions of the tales rather than audiobook versions.
For some activities, using audio files rather than text files is an easy substitution. You may also want to consider using the text files from Lit2Go when implementing the linked plans, but also make the audio files available to struggling readers, English language learners, visually-impaired students, or others who need additional support.

In this lesson for students in second or late first grade, teachers help students explore the concepts of beginning, middle, and ending by reading a variety of stories and charting the events on storyboards. As they retell the stories, students are encouraged to make use of sequencing words first, so, then, next, after that, finally.
Starting with prewriting questions and a storyboard, students construct original stories, progressing from shared writing to guided writing; independent writing is also encouraged. Background information on the Nigerian and Cherokee cultures assembled by the teacher from the listed websites sets the stage for discussion of how beliefs and customs might influence the narrative and the moral of a story.

Students read the tale aloud together and use a story sequence graphic organizer to record the most important events from the story. After reading the story, students create a visual representation of the story in the form of a collage, comic book, or some other creative method.
Students then conduct online research to find information about their assigned culture. In a culminating activity, students retell their folk tale using the visual representation and then summarize the research they compiled. Students give one another feedback on their oral presentations. Fairy Tales from Life by Patricia Schulze Grades Students begin by making a list of fairy tales they know, and then brainstorming characteristics that describe those fairy tales.

After compiling a list of common elements, students collaborate on their own original fairy tales—each student decides what kind of experience to write about, composes and revises a fairy tale, and finally presents their story to the rest of the class.
The lesson follows a process method that includes peer review and encourages using picture books as models and concludes with individual reflection on the group project and fairy tales.

Explore Point of View in Fairy Tales by International Literacy Association Grades When children read a familiar story told from a different point of view and then use what they have read to help them write their own version, they think critically about what the different parts of a story are and how changing these parts changes what the reader gets out of the story.
Fairy tales are perfect for this activity because they are so well known; new versions of fairy tales are often called fractured fairy tales. Fairy Tale Autobiographies by Patricia Schultze Grades Students work together in small groups to read, discuss, and analyze fairy tales.
