Hi, teachers! This week, I’m going to share a few more poems from my new 30 Painless Classroom Poems book, Fairy Tale Garage Sale. The book includes 7 fairy tales, each with an introductory poem and 3 poems from characters selling junk they don’t want/need anymore. Last week, I focused on Jack and the Beanstalk; this week I’m going to share 3 of the 4 Cinderella poems. Here’s the poem that introduces the section. A Note from the Poet: Not every kid has heard every single fairy tale. So, at the start of each set of poems, I wrote one poem to summarize the important points of the tale. For Cinderella, those key points seemed to be: wicked stepmother and sisters who dream of a royal marriage, Cinderella having to stay home and clean, and that shoe that leads to Cinderella marrying the Prince. As a writer, always think about what your reader might already know and might NOT already know.
