Aesop's Fables~ an online reference
We have been working slowly through our Unit III practice for our Story Sequence Chart for creating short stories with IEW. My boys really enjoy using Fables for this writing exercise so I went searching for an on-line resource to be able to quickly go on and have them search for a story they would like to work on for their writing resource.
This is a really great simple site for them to use. It is called Aesop's Fables Online Collection. It has quite a few Fables to choose from and many are quick and easy to read so that they can get right to their writing practice.
Here are a few other sites I found for more fables and also for units working with fables.
Story Book Castle - this has many too~
