And thats my story. By Olivia Cooper

  6. The moral of the Wolf and Crane is not to trust everyone. My favourite Aesop fable and the one we had to find is The lion and the Mouse. The moral is friends come in different sizes. Ayrton

  15. My favourite fabel is The Tortoise & the Hare - because i like the story. The fabel with the "no act of kindness goes unnoticed" is from the Lion and the Mouse. Another way of saying it is : do unto others as you hope to have them do unto you! Max P

  16. My story starts with a birthday party coming up, and she doesn't know who to invite. Theres another girls who hasn't been to a party ever, so one day the girl whos having the party askes if the other girl wants to come to her party. (thats when the kindness wave comes in). So from there they play together every day.Alice.M (i do have this on paper).

  17. My story starts when a new girl can't find her book so someone else rips a piece of paper from her pad. After that the new girl sees someone with no pencil so she lends her a pencil and that starts the wave. Izzy 😊

  20. My favourite Aesop's Fable is The Hare and the Tortoise because
    slow and steady wins the race.The Hare was being mean saying
    "You're a slowcoach" that's not very positive.But the Tortoise had Persistence. The Tortoise had some goals to achieve.Nevaeh Shand.

    1. Yes Nevaeh that is my favourite too. The Tortise is like all of us. We need to persist to achieve our goals.
