Traditional tales - other cultures?

Yes it is back to reality now and planning next literacy unit - Narrative unit "traditional tales", but would like to use some tales from other cultures rather than the ones they already know.

Have found a few but nothing really inspiring yet - needs to be a fairly simple story (Y1) but with potential for enough "exploring the text" type activities....

Thought someone on here might know some?  Smile

If your school has the 2simple software there is one about parrots on one of the programs complete with planning.

Thanks again! Getting quite excited about this now - wasn't looking forward to it at all, nothing against Little Red Riding Hood and friends personally of course, just wasn't feeling very inspired by her! Now I've got the opposite problem of trying to fit in everything I'd like to!

Hey tog- just remembered this which has children;s illustrations
http://www.eurotales.eril.net/contents.htm
The tales are in 2 languages which make them ideal for Y1 as they are planned to have repetition in the story to help children who speak another language.

Have fun. I won't post any more. I love teaching these sort of tales as you can see.
