Product Description

Fables

Reader’s theatre, lessons and writing activities that meet the common core! I am super excited about this unit and I know you will be too!

This Fables packet is loaded with great activities to do with your students that meet the common core. This packet includes 8 different Fables that are written as a reader’s theater scripts or can be used as plays. Children love to read with partners and their friends and rereading the parts to these scripts is great fluency and expression practice.

Included

The Lion and the Mouse-2 reader parts

The Ant and the Grasshopper-3 parts

The Tortoise and the Hare-6 parts

The Dog and His Bone-2 parts

The Fox and the Crow-3 parts

The Boy Who Cried Wolf-4 parts

The Rat and the Elephant-2 parts

The City Mouse and the Country Mouse-3 parts

Other activities included in this packet include:

-What is a fable poster.

-Lesson on character traits where students decide what traits are strengths and which are weaknesses or character flaws. This is a pocket chart activity where you help students sort the traits. (Word cards are included) Then students will take their knowledge of the traits and match them with the characters from the stories that they read.

-Fable Cards are included These cards are great little cards that include the fable on the front and specific questions on the back. These questions ask key ideas that align to the common core. Such as sequencing, comparing and contrasting, understanding elements of the story and understanding the moral or lesson. Bigger pages also available.

-Lesson in understanding the moral or lesson of the fable and students match this to real life examples. Use in a pocket chart or make an anchor chart.

-Students will test their knowledge of fables by writing their own. Students pick characters from a bag and also the moral. Planning sheets, final writing paper and the letters “Lessons Learned!” For your bulletin board.

-Please note printing the reader’s theater and pocket chart activities, along with the animal cards etc.. on card-stock will make this product last longer and look terrific. **

Please download the Preview for a great look at the unit. Have fun and happy teaching! Jane
