Teaching Speaking and Listening: Fables and Traditional Stories uses the context of re-told fables and traditional stories from many cultures to support the teaching of speaking and listening skills to middle primary students.
The resource is divided into two units – Fables & Traditional Stories.
In the Fables unit, students focus on speaking skills (expression, volume and speed).
The Fox and the Lion The Hare and the Tortoise The North Wind and the Sun The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse The Lion and the Hare
In the Traditional Stories unit students focus on listening skills (to recall and respond to information).
Traditional stories include:
Rata’s Canoe The Turtle’s Shell The Nephew of the Moon King Midas The Hen and the Hawk
The units can be used with the whole class being guided through one activity at a time or students may be grouped. The stories are illustrated and come with activity sheets designed to be enlarged to A3 size and pinned on classroom walls. Templates for sequencing activities, story borders, and evaluation sheets are also included, as are teacher-observation sheets that detail the specific skills to be observed.
