Reflection: The Fox and the Grapes Moral - Section 3: Partner Work


First graders are very literal so this lesson seems very challenging.  After much thought I have decided to go back and reteach problem and solution before I teach anymore "find the moral" lessons because I think I can lead the class of of the problem and solution.

The Proficient work has several details on the left and the student wrote to not believe everyone.  This is not a complete sentence, but the the student go the moral.  The Basic  work has one detail and says do not believe nobody, which is really not the moral.  But it is close so I know this student is on the right track.  The Below Basic Work is what most of my class wanted to write, but as I was helping them I steered them away from that through questioning. Most of the class wanted to write details. The questions I ask are: What is happening?  What did they do to fix it? Basically I am asking the class what is the problem and what is the solution.  The I ask how could this problem  and solution connect to your life.  Since we had so much trouble, I am going back to do several lessons on problem and solution with folktales before we revisit central message or moral.  I think I got the cart before the horse here and we have to make sure the students have the prerequisite skills to understand the moral.
