Instructional Ideas

  • Project onto the board for learners to complete as a class
  • Add to a reading assessment to determine placement in reading groups
  • Connect to a unit on Aesop's fables
Classroom Considerations

  • Designed for first graders, but vocabulary and sentence structure may be better suited for older readers
  • Questions do not address the theme of the story, which is the main point of teaching Aesop's fables; consider adding a question about what the story is trying to say
  • Does not include an answer key
  • Final page is blank
Pros

  • Passage and questions are on the same page
Cons

  • Title is not descriptive, preventing learners from making predictions about the reading
  • Passage does not include the fable's moral, which makes the ending more difficult to understand
