This fun, highly interactive lesson is designed to introduced the concept of fables to students. Fables, myths, fairytales, and folktales are often difficult to distinguish. This lesson will help students develop a deeper understanding of the various elements of fables. By incorporating links to well crafted videos, opportunities for "think, pair, share", and wordless picture books, students will construct knowledge about this genre is great detail. Students will also complete authentic work. They will learn how to interpret meaning from morals and apply those meanings to their own lives. Students will also learn about various literary devices like: personification and onomatopoeia. Students will dissect author's purpose. This PowerPoint presentation gives students the opportunity to showcase what they have learned in three lessons: a prediction journal, a fable rewrite, and an exit slip. As a librarian, I have used these methods in my own classroom to increase interest in these types of genres.
