Fables are always a favorite with my students! This file includes 22 fables. For ease of use, each fable is presented on a single page.
With each fable, there is a page of text-dependent questions consisting of two multiple choice questions and one written response question. The written response question remains consistent throughout the pack: Write the moral of this fable in your own words. Explain how this story demonstrates the moral.
Five graphic organizers that can be used interchangeably with any of the fables are also included.
The following fables are included:
★ The Ant and the Dove
★ The Boy Who Cried Wolf
★ The Farmer and His Sons
★ The Lion and the Oxen
★ The Fox in the Well
★ The Goose and the Golden Eggs
★ The Man, His Son and the Donkey
★ The Frogs and the Well
★ The Wind and the Sun
★ The Shepherd and the Wild Goats
★ The Cat, the Rooster and the Mouse
★ The Peasant the the Eagle
★ The Crows and the Pitcher
★ The Young and the Old
★ The Crowded Cottage
★ The Rooster and the Fox
★ The Fox and the Grapes
★ The Rooster and the Jewel
★ The Sickly Lion
★ The Fox and the Crow
★ The Peacock's Tail
★ The Miser and His Gold
These fables are appropriate to read to students in kindergarten. Some first grade students are able to read these toward the end of the year, while others benefit from following along as these fables are read aloud.
These are appropriate independent reading for students reading at a second or third grade level.
Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look!
