Fables are folktales which teach a lesson sometimes called a moral. Students in Mrs. Atkinson’s class where divided into groups. Each group was assigned a fable play to perform for our class and parents at our Writers’ Breakfast.
Our directions were to practice our parts; reading with expression and understanding. We didn’t need to memorize our parts but we could if we wanted. Practice was limited to three days and costumes were creative.
The fables were:
- The Dogs and the Hides
- The Grasshopper and the Owl
- The Lion’s Share
- The Eagle and the Hawk
- The Gnat and the Lion
- The Goose that Laid the Golden Egg
- The Fox and the Crane.
Everybody had a great time and learned about fables.
Here is a Fable play called The Goose that laid the Golden Egg. Try to guess the moral during the video and at the end it will say the actual moral. We hope you will be able to hear it clearly, so you can understand the story. We hope you enjoy this video!
