The Book Fairy's program supports the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills at all grade levels for :
Chapter 110: English, Language Arts, and Reading. Second grade fairy tales and fables is a direct tie in since she is a fairy!!
Chapter 117: Fine Arts, including storytelling and performance.
She also supports technology goals for digital technology, since she uses a "document camera" with a projector, so all children can easily read the books along with her. This can be discussed further with the students either before or after her presentation.
