Today, you told the beginning of the fairy tale and then talked about the gifts in detail.
Here is what you said:
She had to choose a husband among 5 suitors.
The first prince brought a golden apple, the second gave her a bird in diamonds, the third offered a jewel box made of platinum and sapphires, the fourth brought a heart made of rubies and the fifth gave her a tin box with mica, feldspar and hornblende which he had found on the ground.
The first four princes offered valuable metals and precious stones whereas the last one offered cheap ones.
The princess may choose the fifth prince because he is good looking/ handsome and she had never seen a tin box and mica before. Besides, she already had a precious stones.

Actually /In fact, the princess chose the third prince because he brought her the most valuable gift.
Moral : it's naive / gullible to think she would pick the last prince.

Today, after you compared the two stories of the Three Little Pigs, you looked for other differences between the two versions.
You completed your methodology worksheet 'How to twist a fairy tale?'
Then, you picked all the techniques used to twist a fairy tale in the video below:
Here is what you said:
Shrek is a twisted fairy tale because there is a mixing-up tale with Robin Hood. Moreover, there is humour : for example, Robin Hood has a strong French accent and Fiona didn't behave as a princess because she burped.
There are also exaggerations and ridicule when Fiona knocked Robin Hood down.
Roles are switched because Fiona saved Shrek.
Furthermore, it's a parody of Matrix and there is an anachronism with the phone.
