Aesop Fables are timeless and wonderfully simple stories for the classroom. A teacher's favorite but they can sometimes be a little disturbing so use your judgement!

Based on animals, they "teach" a life lesson.  Students can be asked to do several things for each story.

1. Guess the moral. State the moral in English. Not often easy to express. The worksheet has students labeling each story with the correct moral.

2.  Retell the moral.  Either just try to retell the story to another student / group of students after reading or update it and retell or rewrite it as something modern and up to date. Or retell with a twist and from the perspective of a character - like this great book - The True Story of the 3 Pigs). 

Enjoy using these excellently produced ppt versions of the stories!  Also see this online reader.

Students can read some modern Aesop fable stories on Gif Lingua Books. All with quizzes and vocab flashcards.

Some more Aesop Fables. 


And some more Aesop Fables. 


Here are a couple of handy "minibooks". Fox and the crow and The ant and the grasshopper. 

Just print and fold into a small book to read together. Also, complete the sentences to complete your own book!
