I loved teaching with the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. My students acted this play out with enthusiasm–we all acted out the planting of the magical beans and then jumping back as the beanstalk grew to the sky in front of our very eyes. We climbed to the heavenly home of the Giant, stole that goose and scurried back down the beanstalk to show off our treasures.
