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.
