1. Read Nancy Loewen's Once Upon a Time: Writing Your Own Fairy Tale two times.  The first time, read the fairy tale. The second time, read the tools and notice how they relate to the tale.
2. Choose several of your favorite fairy tales, other than Little Red Riding Hood, to read and enjoy. You can read three completely different tales, or you can choose three retellings of the same tale to compare and contrast. If you choose the latter option, Little Red Riding Hood is fine.

3. Analyze each of the tales, noting on this sheet where you see each of the tools in action.

4. Write your own fairy tale. If helpful, use Loewen's "Getting Started Exercises" on page 29, or you may use the planning sheet here.
