THE TRUE STORY OF LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD / Mariana Pacini Andreoli / Caroline Alves Aragão

After exploring the differences between fables and fairy tales, my student Mariana tells me that she is reading ‘The true story of Three Little Pigs’ and confesses: “I don’t like fairy tales”, at least not the way they have been told (or sold to!?) her so far. I knew that this incredible child loves storytelling, so I ask if she would like to write the true story of one of the characters we had just studied about. She promptly starts to draw a girl with a cap. “Is she the little red riding hood?”, I observe and think to myself. Thus, I start our work with WH-questions. Then, we work on food vocabulary and finally, we investigate how to write some verbs in the past. Perrault and The Brothers Grimm would have never pictured that the wolf would save the little red riding hood and the happily ever after would be a friendship proof celebrated with real food. Critical thinking, language studies, creativity, personal aims, empathy, problem-solving, ethics, and citizenship were the ingredients of this delicious journey.  This rich country of discoveries built by us is now proudly shared because our souls land in a foundation of respect and love called Education.
