TEACHERS LIKE YOU SHARED...

  • "I loved that there were several activities for the same story. Students can focus on elements of the fable and the information in it when they are given more than one chance to read it. I loved this resource and so did my kids. They are still learning to locate text evidence so the color-coded part was great practice for them."
  • "We used this for students to recount the fable and determine the lesson. It was easy to use and matched our standard perfectly. I enjoy that there were multiple headers so that you can use the wording that your students are the most familiar with."
  • "I LOVE the graphic organizers in this resource!! The kiddos loved the story and the graphic organizers really helped with multiple concepts! Thank you so much!"
  • "Used in my small group station with my struggling students. This helped them greatly with finding text evidence. "
