Here are a few animations we might use to study 'Little Red Riding Hood' parodies with our pupils.

Parodies are an interesting way of working on traditional and classic literary works : school textbooks now have taken over the English teachers' suggestions and the web offers loads of documents that parody various tales. "Little Red Riding Hood" is one of the most commonly studied in France -yet, many others are also worked on...

I believe storytelling is a very powerful teaching resource for young learners. They feel comfortable with it, and when they read or listen to a story they stop caring about “understanding every single word" of it.

I have used Storytelling with 15-year olds!  They also loved it.  If you get your students to write their stories directed towards young children, it helps them to use simple vocabulary and structures which is great writing practice for them.  Afterwards they can share them on a wiki/blog/moodle site.  Very rich! I'm attaching two examples of my students' stories.

Great for students to make their own stories.
