Shelves: animals , happy , helpful-tool , kids , lesson I absolutely loved this story about the Hare and the Tortoise. It speaks upon the lesson of slow and steady wins the race. Sometimes the facts don't matter as long as you try your best. Arthur does a wonderful illustration of the race. Dec 05, Chloe rated it really liked it It's a classic! The poor hare lost the race. That's what you get for sleeping while running!
You leave the book when the Tortoise says, "OK, good-bye! He is also the first main deuteragonist to ask you if you're sure you want to quit the next being D. Read in Arthur's Reading Race. This time the Ruff's Bone preview was in both versions, but it was slightly altered for V1. The two unused previews were left in the game yet again, and this time, they're present on both versions of the game.
The only way these can be accessed is by editing the outline file. They're saved as PREV Like the previous two games, this one originally had a slow fading engine in v1.
This is also the first game to wait for sounds to finish before continuing animation. In the previous two games, sounds would get cutoff if they ran longer than the animation.
The v1. Quotes Simon: That hare is moving so fast. He's not paying attention to where he's part of the roof of the tortoise's house breaks going! The hare believed he is the fastest animal, but in reality he isn't and there are others who are smarter and stronger than him.
In life, it is not enough that you achieve one thing because there is more to life. The hare was arrogant about his abilities because that's the only thing he knew.
The turtle, how lacking he may be physically, is smart and determined because he knew that if he challenges his abilities, he can continue to improve. He also learned to be humble because he knew that there is so much to discover about life. We need to grow more and overcome struggles because that is how we learn to be better. There's always something to learn about children's stories.
If people would read them often and think about what they truly meant then the world would be a better place. In this fable from Aesop, a tortoise became the reason for laughter from a hare. The hare accepts and they choose a fox to referee. They begin the race and the hare leaves the tortoise far behind. Confident in herself, the hare stops to take a nap halfway and enjoy the early spoils of victory.
When she awakes, she continues with the race only to find the tortoise at the finish line. The archetype of the hare is ge In this fable from Aesop, a tortoise became the reason for laughter from a hare.
So, in this story, who tricked who? The hare knew that victory would come easy, so the challenge was laughable. This confidence turned into arrogance, a gross underestimation. Anyone remember the old Bugs Bunny cartoons between him and the tortoise? Illustrated by Ernest Griset. Revised and re-written by J. Also later editions.
I would recommend this story for pre-K-2 classrooms. Mar 11, Melissa added it Shelves: The story of The Hare and the Tortoise is a classic that most people learn when they are young. The arrogant hare is constantly laughing at the slowness of the tortoise. The tortoise then challenges the hare to a race and the hare, thinking he is the best and the fastest, agrees. As the race starts, the hares thinks that he will be able to overtake the tortoise and win easily so he decides to lay down and take a nap.
The hare oversleeps and when he wakes up, the tortoise is nowhere to be found! The tortoise has won the race while the hare was asleep in the forest. This is a classic fable made up of only animal characters and presents the moral that slow and steady wins the race.
Also, not to be arrogant and judge people on one ability or piece. I didn't realize when I read this class Aesop fable that it was so short. It barely took up one page of the book. I think this story would be best for elementary school who are learning of morals or how to treat others and would be easy for them to understand as well as probably already know. I don't see any weaknesses to this story as it's a classic tale and accessible to all children.
I would recommend this for pre-K - 2nd grade. There are many versions of this traditional tale but this version illustrated by Arthur Friedman is brightly colored with overly large animal characters, much to big to be in proportion with the rest of the setting i.
This makes it the perfect version for a younger audience read aloud as the characters of the hare and the tortoise seem to jump off the page.
Children will like the happy ending of the tortoise winning over the mean hare. An opportune time to discuss with younger students the concept of kind words and teasing. Although the illustrations of this version appeal to a younger audience, I would examine this with 3rd and 4th graders asking them to apply the moral of "slow and steady wins the race" to an area of their life in a journaling topic.
Target audience: Sep 02, Megan rated it really liked it. I grew up knowing this classic tale by heart, but I know from asking around last semester that some of my former third graders had never heard the story. I think the language Aesop uses in his original work may be hard to understand for some younger students, like those in grades K But I know many authors have adapted the tale to a younger audience by changing the language, which may make the moral reso I am embarrassed to say I had no idea that The Hare and the Tortoise was written by Aesop!
But I know many authors have adapted the tale to a younger audience by changing the language, which may make the moral resonate better with kids. There is a clear lesson at the end of the story that could easily become a theme in the classroom take your time, don't rush, etc. View 1 comment.
Jan 25, Ali Lutz added it Shelves: In my "classroom" I would make an activity to demonstrate the lesson "slow and stead wins the race". I believe that the lesson can be interpreted as taking your time to ensure quality in things you do.
To show this extended meaning I would do this by dividing the class into two and having them each build a tower. The first group would have only 5 minutes to complete their tower and group two would be given 10 minutes to finish.
After we would stack different objects on the towers and see which s In my "classroom" I would make an activity to demonstrate the lesson "slow and stead wins the race". After we would stack different objects on the towers and see which stands up the longest. This will demonstrate the importance of quality and how in the end it outweighs being the quickest. Aesop; Illustrated by Arthur Frieldman Title: The Hare and the Tortoise Plot: The woods Characters: Hare, Tortoise, Fox Point of View: Third person Theme: Changes within ourselves Style: Fable Copyright: This is a good choice for a fable.
Picture book The South African edition to the classic Tortoise and the Hare folktale, this is a must add to my K Folktale text set.
A simplistic text to tell the lesson of slow and steady wins the race, this story is one that all children must read. The hardworking Tortoise shows the boastful Hare the importance of working hard and gets the carrot in the end.
The structure of the story also allows for K students to develop the understanding of problem and solution as well as setting. Probably the most well known fairy tale around, I don't know anyone who doesn't know this story by heart. It is also known as the Tortoise and the Hare, basically its about being overconfident and under the assumption you will always win because you're fast, sometimes being slow does with the race, remember the Aussie who won an Olympic gold medal in speed-skating because he was the only one left standing?
Feb 19, Erin Leffler rated it liked it Shelves: This classic tale is one that all students will enjoy! This is a theme that most students can identify with, and that most can benefit from.
Even though the hare as speed, the tortoise has the patience and motivation to complete the task at hand. This is one that all students should read! Aug 14, Iain Hamill rated it really liked it Shelves: Suffice to say - a bit of a classic and a good lesson on actions speaking louder than words. Feb 19, Christy Whitaker rated it it was amazing Shelves: The hare is no match for this tortoise.
Slow and steady really does win the race. A great story for children. This book provides a great moral- you can succeed through diligence and taking your time when facing any task. Apr 17, WroxallPoppy rated it really liked it. We had a big class discussion on what boasting was!
And why sometimes it is the wrong thing to do! Slow and steady wins the race.
