School fables by Kindergarten 2008

Page history last edited by Ian McLean 4 months ago

Next Group Project

In Term Four 2008, a new group of Early Stage 1 students collaborated on some fables using school-based themes. Firstly, we knew about the fables other students wrote in 2007. Secondly, we discussed our ideas in Circle Time with Mr McLean, our teacher-librarian and decided that the morals of our fables would be about our school motto. Thirdly, we drew our favourite scenes and characters. Mr McLean selected some pictures and scanned them, then put one on each wiki page. Next, we jointly-constructed and edited the fables right onto this wiki. Finally, when we knew how the three fables turned out, we drew some extra pictures for you and scanned them to decorate the wiki pages.


Before we knew about wikis, we used to write our recounts, procedures and narratives on butcher's paper, or put them in a "news book". Weaving a wiki is fun, and we can share our work with the whole world! Please scroll down to see the rest of our template.


  1. The giraffe's own room - a fable
  2. The lion and his cub - a fable
  3. The clever rhinoceros - a fable
  4. Annotations about ES1's progress
  5. Brainstorming
  6. Conference notes.



We hope that you enjoyed following our progress! Please send us your comments; we love to read them. The teacher-librarian at Jasper Road PS was so inspired by our friends' 2007 efforts that she started a wiki at her own school - and her Stage 1 students wrote some fables, too!




Working together using this wiki


Think of this wiki as a shared online whiteboard. Your entire group can share information using this wiki, making your research accessible to everyone. Play around with this wiki: Notice how you can add comments to a page, see what people have changed, and edit all the text.
