Free Short Stories for Kids: Stories of the Month

Free Short Stories of the Month: March Theme: Girls of Courage 

Welcome to Stories to Grow by Free Short Stories for Kids! Each month we will explore a group of our stories through a monthly theme. These Fairy Tales and Folktales will showcase the monthly theme through positive moral messages. We will choose stories that can be used in the classroom, typically ages 6-12. Each of the free short stories for kids listed will be available for the entire month. Monthly themes for the beginning of 2018 are as follows:

April: Determination/Grit 

May: Creativity/Wit

Each week our Blog will feature in-depth descriptions of the stories and lesson plans for the ELA classroom. If the stories for the month have an accompanying Reader's Theater Script, we will have those available for free also.
