Don't you remember your Mom and Dad reading you stories about talking animals who face some sort of great challenge and learn an important lesson along the way?! Aesop's fables are some of my favorite stories ever told! Surprisingly, little ones today don't have much experience with this stories from long ago. This unit is designed to expose students to the wonderful world of FABLES along with getting them to think on a higher level!
In this 51 page unit, students will...
-Chart and discuss the moral(s) found in various fables
-Compare different versions of the same fable
-Analyze character(s) based on their actions in the story to compose a character trait belonging to the character(s) in the story
-Retell a fable they've read (either included in this pack, online using http://pbskids.org/lions/stories/ or any other fable apps using your classroom iPads-there are many freebies out there!!) I've included a list of books, websites, and apps to help you get started!
-Create a retelling book based on a fable
-Blank graphic organizer to use for your own favorite fable(s)
-Read some classic fable stories they will remember for years to come!
Over 40 pages of activities for whole group, small group, and independent practice. You can level the fables to your choosing based on grade and/or student level.
