Donna has taken beloved fables from Aesop, African legends, Jataka traditions, the Middle East, Mexico and many other sources and woven them into a magical language arts block, just right for 2nd Graders and their lovably contrary ways. I truly believe that these stories, told in succession over the 2-4 week block, will melt the resistance of any student. Not to mention teach them a great deal about language and the ways of the human heart. This is a lesson block for everyone to love!
