What fun it was to watch grades K thru 3 perform ‘Sing a Song of Aesop’ last evening! They sang and acted out 5 of Aesop’s most famous fables. A fable is a short story that teaches a lesson or conveys a moral. You’ll find a lot of personified animals in fables, like talking rabbits and wise mice! Children tend to find this appealing, making the moral of the story more relevant. Aesop is quite possibly the most famous fable writer of all time. We don’t know a lot about him, but many of the morals in his fables revolve around equality, justice, and virtuous behavior. Without question, Aesop created a treasure trove of fables for children to read and draw lessons from…..adults also! Morals of the story:
The Ant and the Grasshopper: Don’t put off ’til tomorrow what you can do today.
The Boy who Cried Wolf: A liar will not be believed even when he speaks the truth.
The Tortoise and the Hare: Slow and Steady wins the race.
The Lion and the Mouse: Even the strongest can sometimes use the help of the smallest.
The City and the Country Mouse: Better to nibble corn in peace than to feast in fear.
Thanks to Mr. Wells, all the teachers, and the ladies that came to help with costumes and ‘make-up’! It takes everyone to make it happen!
Awesome performance everyone!!! You were all just so cute also!! “)
