Each fable in this collection have been written to appeal to the elementary student. They are written with today's language for easier understanding. Context clues have been added to many to allow students to practice using context clues to figure out unknown words in other texts they read, along with a page that can be used as a 'cheat sheet' for students or even printed as a poster. Answer keys are included with each fable set.
The student will be able to go back to the text to find answers to questions about each fable, similar to the way we need them to do for testing situations. The hands-on approach to cause and effect keeps students engaged as they manipulate each pair.
These can be used in small group, independently as formative assessments, or even as a center activity. Can be used for 2nd or 3rd grade readers, higher level 1st grade and lower 4th grade readers.
Included in this bundle are the following titles:
The Maid and the Milk Pail
The Tortoise and the Hare
The Miller, His Son, and Their Donkey
Belling the Cat
The Dog and His Reflection
The Crow and Pitcher
The Lion and Mouse
The Fox and Stork
The Boy That Cried Wolf
It's a great collection of classic fables that students enjoy reading and sharing with others. They could even be divided up between students and used with a jigsaw activity where students learn a fable and share it with others.
