About the Author:
Matt Weber is currently a 3rd grade teacher in his twenty something-th year teaching. Students in third grade write folk tales, fairy tales, or fables for their unit of writing for fictional narrative. He got tired of writing “folk tales, fairy tales, or fable” on the board, so he made up the portmanteau “Folktairyable” for what his students were writing. Part of the curriculum is to also compare and contrast the similarities and differences of well-known stories. He and his students started to come up with lists that turned into diagrams and graphs and charts. Everyone seemed to be amused by the results as well as the additional portmanteau of diagram, graph, and chart which became “diagraphart”-ing for what they were doing.
Folktairyables Diagrapharted is available through IPG, Baker & Taylor, Ingram, Amazon, and all other retail and wholesale channels.
