Transcript of Fables

Fractured Fables
Fractured Fables are a new spin on the classic fables we all know and love. They take a fable that most people are familiar with and changes the characters, setting, plot, or points of view.

The Fractured Fable I chose to focus on is “The True Story of the Three Little Pigs” by: A. Wolf.

Other good Fractured Fables: Cinder Edna, Little Red Cowboy Hat, The Stinky Cheese Man and other Fairly Stupid Tales.

Drawing the Main Characters
What are Fables?
The definition of a fable is: a short story, typically with animals as characters, conveying a moral.The fable is one of the most enduring forms of folk literature. Fables can be found in the literature of almost every country. Fables can play a big role in an Early Years classroom as they are very relatable to children and are geared towards them. Fables are full of great lessons, morals and characters that can be tied into just about any subject or topic.
For example one most Canadians are familiar with is the tortoise and the hare. The tortoise and the hare have a race and the hare, who is much faster than the tortoise gets smug, and takes a nap. While he is sleeping the tortoise passes him and ultimately wins. The moral of the story is slow and steady wins the race.

Class Activity
The Lion and the Mouse book Summary:
The Lion captures the Mouse while she is taking a quick nap from her busy day. The Mouse tries to convince the Lion that she is too small of a meal to eat and to let her go, giving the promise that she will help the Lion whenever he is in need. The Lion lets her go under the Mouses word. A few days later, the Lion gets captured in a net by a couple of hunters. The Mouse hears the Lions cries and helps the Lion by chewing through the net and setting the Lion free.
The Moral of this story (again..)
"A good deed should be returned" (Percy, 2010, p.5).
As you have probably guessed, it is the story of the three little pigs, but it is told by the wolf. He claims that he was making a cake for his granny and had a terrible sneezing cold. He ran out of sugar so he went to his neighbors house, who was a pig that had built his house out of straw. He asks for some sugar and gets no response, and then sneezes which blows the house down. The pig was home after all, but is now dead so he decides to eat him up and move on to the next house. It repeats for the pig whose house was made of sticks. When he gets to the pigs house made of bricks, he asks for some sugar and the pig tells him no and to go away, and then he insults his granny. The wolf can’t stand it when people insult his granny so he goes crazy and tries to blow the house down and he is sneezing and huffing and puffing the whole time. The media have arrived and capture him in his rage and frame him.

I want my hat back: activity
Kindergarten SLOs covered
" 2.2.1 Experience Various Texts
Participate in shared listening, reading, and viewing experiences using texts from a variety of forms and genres"
" 2.2.3 Appreciate the Artistry of Texts
Share feelings evoked by oral, literacy and media texts"
Students and teacher will read I want my Hat back and discuss the different emotions the book made them feel. these words of emotion will be written on the board for later reference. Then they will watch the short video. Students then paint a cut out bear with watercolors. While students are engaged in activity teacher will pull aside students to work on writing work sheet that asks questions about different emotions felt while reading the book and watching the clip.
"The bear's hat is gone, and he wants it back. Patiently and politely, he asks the animals he comes across, one by one, whether they have seen it. Each animal says no, some more elaborately than others. But just as the bear begins to despond, a deer comes by and asks a simple question that sparks the bear's memory and renews his search with a vengeance. Told completely in dialogue, this delicious take on the classic repetitive tale plays out in sly illustrations laced with visual humor-- and winks at the reader with a wry irreverence that will have kids of all ages thrilled to be in on the joke" Amazon. (2011).
