The Lion and Mouse (two versions)

Aesop's Fables
are an entertaining way to foster the love of reading, increase vocabulary and learn a life lesson that will be useful to our children for the rest of their lives.

I suggest a good place to start is to explain or review in simple terms what is a fable.
fable - story that teaches a lesson:  a short story with a moral, especially one in which the characters are animals.

Children love fables because most of them feature animals as the main characters.

Here is a list of printable materials to use for the activity - links are in the materials column.  Note:  No words or letters were added to the activity/party card and puzzle craft templates so these can be adapted by viewers wishing to use them in other languages and to allow for educators to choose their lettering of choice: standard or modern manuscript.

1.  Fable Poster with Image and Text in English
Now let's read one of the most famous:  1.  The Lion and the Mouse:
Read and print this text only version or print fable card.  Exhibit in a flannel board, poster board or easel.  Visit two richly illustrated online story versions.

Discuss the lesson of this fable and maybe you can come up with some real life situations that apply to it.

2.  Printable Activity Party Sets:
Lion theme and Mouse Theme
These sets can be used as part of the presentation of the fable.  The sets are available in color or black and white so the children can color and decorate them.
