Re-Create the Tortoise and the Hare

Tortoise and the Hare - Response Journal - FREEDue to my recent move, I’ve had a bunch of time without internet, so I decided to use the time to get ready for the summer camp program I am teaching in next week.  We will have students with very limited English and we will be using the story of the Tortoise and the Hare to catch their attention and work on reading, writing, and vocabulary.  I put together this cute 20 page packet that we are going to work through a little at a time, which you can grab FREE at my Teachers Pay Teachers store.

In addition to reading the Tortoise and the Hare, we are going to look at other “similar” stories from around the world – like the Fox and the Crab (where the crab wins the race by catching a ride on the Fox’s tail).  Does anyone have another “tricky race” type of story they could suggest for me?

    Love doing units like kids got really into comparing fables last year and liked "The Little Book of Fables" and "Fables" by Lobel. I don't have either in front of me, but feel like there might have been a twist in one of them? Great resource though! And sooo...I pass to you the Versatile Blogger award!
