Fables are a great way for young readers to about some of learn life's important lessons. They are also an excellent opportunity for writers to share important messages that are relevant to them now.
Last week we used The Fable Planning Tool to construct fables with my grade 6 students, learning about messages, symbolism and even reading some of Aesop's work to learn how to construct a fable that will stand the the test of time.
The at the end of the week we published our fables as picture story books and read them to our junior school. The kids loved the process and it was a nice change in their narrative writing schedule at their age.
This planning tool includes a storyboard, examines characters and, setting and includes a large range of morals to get children in the right frame of mind.
