Hello friends! I've got quite a handful of activities to share with you.

Get ready to feel excited about fables with The Story of the Tortoise and the Hare emergent reader! Your littles will LOVE having their very own kid-friendly version of this story to read on their own.

(Note: This post may contain affiliate links.)
This fable was written with high frequency words in mind. I tried to use as many and I could naturally squeeze in! Use fun scented crayons (snifff!...ahhhh...) to 'butter' the various phonics sounds or words you are currently working on with your kiddos. 


The following pictures of the book's 13 pages tell the story of how the bragging hare was taught a lesson by the determined tortoise. 

Have your little readers trace the path that the tortoise and the hare mapped out for their race!
The last page of the story allows little readers to reflect and practice a writing response.
I'll include a link further down below for this easy to read book!

To go along with this mini-unit, I recommend making adorable crafty tortoises such as these from FrugalFun4Boys. Just make sure to ask parents and friends to help you collect egg cartons a few weeks before your unit so that you'll have enough!

Another fun craft I found that is FREE is from ItsyBitsyFun:
Mazes and puzzles from this Tortoise and the Hare Activity Book are great for fast finishers or even to send home as extra fun!
End your unit with a fun, rabbity treat, such as these delicious and easy Rice Krispies treats from KidFriendlyThingsToDo:

Ok, here is a link (just like I promised) that will take you to the Tortoise and the Hare Emergent Reader.
