Description

Proverbs, or maxims, are sayings that convey common wisdom. This free two-page set includes 25 adages and their interpretations. You can use them to teach English sayings or as a springboard for writing fables.

Proverbs and Writing Fables

Every great fable begins with a strong moral. Get kids thinking with this set of maxims. Once they’ve decided on a lesson, ask them to think of a series of events to teach it (plot). Add a beginning paragraph that introduces the characters and setting (exposition), an ending paragraph that infers or tells the moral (resolution), and characters with human traits.

That’s it! Your students - - - even the most reluctant writers - - - can produce high quality pieces with this simple format.

Enjoy Teaching!
