Enjoy this free sampler! The original version of this free resource is designed to teach multiple standards in one week. Everything you need to engage your students in a close read is at your fingertips in the original fable flipbook resource: from character and plot analysis, determining theme and message, using context clues to determine the meaning of unknown words, to practicing fluency and expression skills through readers' theater activities. The original flipbook includes the fable itself (grade-level and struggling readers version) and all the essential questions/graphic organizers (specific to this particular fable) necessary for guiding students in a close read. Did I mention detailed lesson plans, teacher notes, and answer keys to guide and optimize instruction were included?

NOTE: That's one week of lesson plans with literally little prep!
