Instructional Ideas
  • Read the story together and assign the vocabulary practice for homework, picking and choosing which worksheets to assign based on your pupils' ability levels
  • Use this as part of a unit on various fairy tales
Classroom Considerations
  • Kids who need to work on their printing can complete the tracing page for practicing the vocabulary; all students can practice their cursive with the other tracing page
  • Most versions of the story write the character's name as Bluebeard; all of the materials included here say Blue Beard instead
  • Make sure to go to the materials tab to find all of the vocabulary worksheets (one for definitions and sentences, one for practicing printing, and a third for practicing cursive) and a full copy of the story
  • The lines provided for students to write on are inconsistent sizes; some are full handwriting lines and others are narrow and may be too small for younger grades
