moral

i’m introducing fables. i’m really trying to get them to notice the character’s development and how that leads to the moral. luckily most fables come right out and say what the moral is. but it’s difficult for them when it’s not. it takes a lot of prompting and think alouds before they realize what it is, and i keep going back to character. oooh, look at how this one is acting! see his face? hmm. that makes me think… wow! look at him now! i think he learned his lesson…

can i just say that i laughed when we were talking about one of the fables today because that was so what happened yesterday? i guess morals never change.
