Then a few weeks ago, I was contacted by Vincent Mastro to review a Teacher's Guide that he created to go with his book. The teacher's guide is a wonderful 87 page resource. One of the things that I love most about it is that it has a copy of the stories in the guide. The pages lay flat, so I can put them under my document camera.
I also love the fact that he has broken the lesson plans down into columns. It states the ELA standards for both second and third grade that the stories/questions answer. It also has writing activities for grades 1-4 in the back of the teacher's guide, (they also state the standard that they support)

Each year I have my kiddos write a fable to wrap up our study of fables. You can download the guidelines and checklist I created for my students here for free.
