Reflection: Lesson Planning When, Where and What's the Problem? You're the reporter!! - Section 3: Teachers' Turn


You may notice that I've expanded the idea of traditional fables and included some that could be thought of as fairy tales. My students are not familiar with a lot of the fables and it's hard to work with them unless we read each one.

My goal for the year is to do this - take time to read these classics and discuss them so they become part of their general knowledge. I still feel that the fairy tales that I've included are also 'classics' that the kids should know and are part of our American culture.
