Here is a compilation of photos that pertain to the 9 fables I'm suggesting for 2020. Since we are trying to achieve distance learning without putting kids in front of screens, it's not that easy to share my teaching ideas with the homeschool families in our co-op who are trying to implement the hands-on lessons I create. Hopefully these photos will come in handy!!!!
They are all really simple to execute (like walking around with a basket on your head while you talk to yourself, and then tossing your head with pride and seeing the basket go flying) but kids absolutely love them!
This is the companion post to Care Package for the Fables Block.

I ended up finding one more fable to add to our list. It is The Boys and the Frogs. If the weather is warm out, go to a pond or river and skip some stones. Another fun option for this fable is to make origami frogs. I found the most useful instructions to be at How to make a jumping frog. You can use origami paper but you can also use newspaper, pages from old phone books, or wrapping paper. I made my little practice guy out of graph paper.
