Monday and Tuesday
What is a fable? Talk to your grown up about any fables you might have read and jot down what you know about them...what do they have in common?
Now that you have spent some time immersing yourselves in fables, let's put a list of features together. Here's what I came up with:
Please Dojo us if you want to add anything and we will update the list!
A 'moral' is a lesson that can be taken from a story. It can help us to live a better life. So, for example, in the fable of the lion and the mouse...the moral is that "one god turn deserves another!" This mean that if you help somebody, one day somebody might help you in return. This moral encourages us to try to be more helpful people. I am going to give you three morals today and your job is to think over the fables you have read and to try to match 3 of them that encourage them! Here goes, your morals are:
"If you are greedy, you may end up with nothing!"
If you try your best, you will eventually succeed!"
"Appearances can be deceptive!"
There might be more than one fable to fit each one, I can't wait to hear what you came up with!
Think of all the fables and other stories where wolves appear. What are their personalities usually like? Write as many adjectives as you can that describe them. Use these to write expanded noun phrases to best describe your wolf!
The sneaky, red-eyed wolf
The Monstrous, cruel beast
Can you think of any other animals that would work well as a baddy? What about a goody?
Can you remember the job of an adverbial? That's right...it tells us more about how, where or when something happened. Today, you are going to use time adverbials to help sequence the fable of 'The dog and his reflection'. First, listen to the fable and start to think of 6 important parts of the story...
