The Rabbit and the Turtle: The First Four Lessons

The first four lessons of the Rabbit and the Turtle get students creating language, writing sentences with that language, discovering parts of speech from their sentences, and then writing a story with the vocabulary the whole class has generated.

These lessons are great for any teacher because they fill the hours the class is together with valuable activities.

To the teacher: Click on any lesson to begin. Each lesson has a PDF with all essential handouts and there are videos too of teacher talk and student activities. I hope these lessons are of use. Enjoy:
