Tales from Long Ago

by Nancy Boyles
Illustrated by Charlotte Shama

This collection of passages for Grade 5 provides students with close reading practice. What do a family of  Larks, a little fern, and the donkey ears of Midas have to do with us and our world today? Read these folktales from long, long ago to see how this wisdom from way back is still relevant and useful as we solve modern-day problems. Which lesson speaks to you most profoundly? How can it make a difference in your own life? Read the passages closely to answer these questions. Also included are places to pause and reflect on the text and opportunities to respond to the reading.
