What are fairies?

The Tooth Fairy - Sharon Peters

The Tooth Fairy would be a very engaging topic for Elementary School students. Every child loves when they lose a tooth and the excitement of the tooth fairy coming. This book would dive deeper into thinking. I would ask students questions about the book while reading. I would also bring out their imagination and what they think of the tooth fairy who has came to their own house. After reading the story I would have them do a writing prompt and draw me a picture of what they actually think the tooth fairy looked like. Is it a boy or a girl? What kind of hair do they have? what do the wings look like? etc. Then write about why they chose to draw about the details of their own picture.
