I have combined my Fables and Folktales Lapbook and 5 Literacy Centers this Bundle Pack.
What's included in the Fables and Folktale Literacy Centers:
Included are 3 Fable cards with 5 Literacy Centers for Fables and Folktales! Please read the description below.
The Loin and the Mouse– I have included a brief story card for student use. Simply print, cut and laminate story cards and vocabulary words. Make multiple copies of student recording forms and place at center. Students will use story card for context clues to determine which definitions the vocabulary cards match up to. Students can use a dictionary to check their words and then complete the recording form.
The vocabulary cards can also be used as an additional center to put cards into alphabetical order. Students will use provided recording form for documentation.
The Tortoise and the Hare- I have included a brief story card for student use. Simply print, cut and laminate story cards and sequence strips. Make multiple copies of student recording forms and place at center. Students will use story card to read and then put sentence strips in the correct order. Afterwards, students will record the number in which each event occurred in the tortoise’s shell.
The Fox and the Crow- I have included a brief story card for student use. Simply print, cut and laminate story cards and grammar sentence cards. Make multiple copies of student recording forms and place at center. Students will read the story and then determine if the highlighted words found on each card, are either nouns or adjectives. Students will use recording form for documentation.
Putting it all Together– Print, cut and laminate moral cards. Students will now reread (if necessary) each fable and determine the moral of the story. Students will read the fable cards and determine which fable the moral can be found in. Then students will interpret each moral into kid friendly language, explaining what the moral means.
What's included in the Lapbook:
I have included ten activity flippers— to be used for a Lap Book or as a component in your Reading Interactive Journal. Not all will fit into the Lap Book style format. Therefore, you may pick which ones you see that best fit your kids’ needs.
I have also included questioning prompts for each flipper activity. If you prefer, you may use these in an Interactive Journal piece. For example, you would begin your lesson initiating discussion with the provided prompt. Students will glue the prompt into their journal and record their responses. Then read the Fable/Folktale of your choice, and complete the flipper activity. Students can glue flipper right into Interactive Journal. After completion, students can write a response on what they have learned or what they now know about the given flipper topic. I love using this format because students can really take “inventory” on what they already know about the topic and then reflect on what they’ve learned after the lesson is completed. It is a much more thorough approach that can span over the course of 2-3 days. I have used both styles (Lap Book and Interactive Journals). Use what works for you with the students you have and the time you are willing to invest. I also (personally) like to switch from Interactive Journals/Lap Books just to switch it up a bit for the kids too!
