Guided Reading Level Q, Grade Level Equivalent 4. Use this mini-book to teach the classic Greek myth of Psyche and Cupid. Then, discuss the themes of jealousy, fear, and trust.
The ending of this myth may perplex students. In other retellings, Cupid eventually forgives Psyche. Invite students to write their own ending. They can either start where the mini-book leaves off, or go back into the story and start from a different point. Does Psyche take her sisters’ advice to peek at Cupid while he’s sleeping? Does Cupid decide that Psyche deserves a second chance?
