Included in this packet is the classic fable, "The Fox and the Grapes," a printable illustration (coloring) page, a double-sided reproducible worksheet, and an answer key.
The worksheets in this (and my other fable packets) include a variety of question types ranging from "context clues" to "making inferences."
Better yet, though, each line of the fable is numbered. Thus, the children not only have to answer each question, but also cite which line(s) the textual evidence came from to support their answer.
This handout can be used classwork, homework, or in literacy centers. It is also rendered in black and white to so as to produce crisp, clear copies every time.
On a personal note, I am also partial to fables because they provide an opportunity to teach children valuable "life" lessons about human character, behavior, and "common sense" - a few items that curiously seem to be missing from most modern curricula.
I thank you for taking the time to preview this product and hope you are able to put it to good use. Moreover, I hope it provides some benefit and enjoyment to your students.
