When I pulled up the flipchart today with the essential question, the kids were like, "Yes! We read the fable, "The Ant and the Grasshopper" together as a class and then discussed the different things in the story that made it a fable.
I modeled how to fill out the chart on the fable we had just read together as a class. I then gave the kids their own copy of this chart and the fable "The Lion and the Mouse," to read. After students read the fable on their own, they had to fill out this chart. We came back at the end of class and shared what they thought the moral of the story was and what examples of personification they found!
It was so much fun and honestly, I was surprised at how well they did coming up with the moral of the story.
Some of the kids came up with different kinds of morals, but they all made sense! A couple of months ago, Kristen from Ladybugs Teacher Files shared this wonderful template which I have since embraced and used religiously from that day forward!!
I made some slight changes to suit my own purposes and this is what mine looks like. Just so you get the full effect I write a ton of stuff in there! I am a word for word type person.
