Fable Role-Play

Over the past two weeks we have been working hard on our genre study of fables and folktales. In Reader's Workshop last week, we dove deeper into the genre of fablesEarlier this week we used these stories to track story elements of fables including the setting, personification, the problem or flaw of a character, and the moral. Students worked in mini fable booklets to track their own thinking on a graphic organizer. 

Rider, Ava and Olivia chart story elements.

Sage and Maggie work together to track their thinking.

Will and Michael write in their graphic organizer.

Annalisa, Addison and Emily work as a team to read their fable.

Later in the week students worked in small groups to perform a fable for their classmates. The rest of the group was asked to guess the moral of the story. Check out the videos below!
