Teach Starter Publishing
4 mins | Years: 1 - 2

This twist on the classic Cinderella fairy tale can be incorporated into a variety of literacy lessons. 

Use this resource to help introduce narratives to younger students and explore plot structure, characters and language features. Take a look at our amazing Fairy Tales Collection.

This video shows the beginning of Cinderella. It does not contain the ending which allows it to be used for a number of activities such as:

  • write what you think is going to happen in the end
  • re-write an alternative ending to the traditional fairy tale
  • act out the ending.
