Wisdom Tale by Jack. H

There once was a flock of sheep. In the flock there was a sheep called Baptiste and all the other sheep thought he was so cool. One day the farmer got Baptiste in a bag and brought him in so the farmer could cut his fur.

There was another sheep called Ferdinand. Ferdinand did not think Baptiste was cool. Because he did not like Baptiste people did not like him. They made fun of him and played jokes on him but Ferdinand did not mind.

When Baptiste got back all the sheep wanted their fur to be like his, all but Ferdinand. So the farmer got the sheep and got all their fur. Ferdinand wanted his fur because it would be winter and that meant cold. When winter came they all, but one, froze and got cold. They asked if he would sleep next to them but he said, “No.”

They asked if he would give some of his fur. He said,”No!”

All but Ferdinand froze to death. The farmer asked Ferdinand why he had not followed the pack. I knew it would be winter in a few days. That meant it would be cold and I wanted to be myself and not do things just to fit in or be normal.

The moral is be yourself and don’t do things just to fit in or be normal.

The Ranting Rooster by Nate V

The Ranting Rooster

Once in India there was a very proud and talkative rooster named George that like to

boast about how powerful he was. One day another rooster said to george,

“if you are so brave then you wouldn’t be afraid to take the claw of a tiger”.

“No I would not said george”. So he set out. on the fourth day of traveling he came

upon a tiger’s cave. Inside he saw a sleeping tiger. He took scissors and cut one of the tigers

claws off. But then the tiger woke up! He chased george and came so close that he shaved

the rooster’s tail feathers off. George never bragged again.

Moral-Don’t brag

 

My Own Wisdom Tale by Will P

I wrote my own wisdom tale called, “The Misunderstood Bear.” It is about a bear who all of the fish think is vicious but it turns out that the bear, Bruce, is friendly. He is sad the nobody is friends with him. A young salmon becomes good friends with him but his parents get angry at him for befriending the bear. The salmon tells all of the fish that Bruce is nice. The fish president agrees and soon, all of the fish were friends with Bruce. The moral of the story is, don’t judge a book by its cover. I chose to make this the moral because it is very important.

Wisdom Tales Comic by: Ellie

Comic by Ellie

In class we took a Wisdom Tale and made a fun comic. I did The Lion and the Rabbit. It is about a lion that kills for pleasure. The animals then make a deal that they would give the lion one animal each day in return that they wouldn’t be harmed. The first animal, a wise rabbit, tricked the lion into going to a well because he wanted the lion to think there was a very powerful lion there. The lion did jump into the well and the animals lived!

Wisdom Tales Comic by Franny C

In language arts, we read a book of wisdom tales and took notes on them. After our wisdom tales test, we did a wisdom tales comic. For our comic, we used Comic Life and we put together a comic that showed the story of a wisdom tale. I did The Lion Makers. I really liked this project because we were able to do it sort of on our own time and in class time. I liked drawing the pictures and picking out the format for my comic like doing the text box and other words fill color! I like doing that kind of design-type stuff. For me, this was a really nice experience and I will definitely be doing more comics for fun and- who knows- maybe they will be for another class too!

The Red and Blue Coat Neil M

This is my comic I made based on the Wisdom Tale, The Blue and Red Coat. The illustrations were all made on Sketchbook pro on the iPad, then transferred to the computer and put together using Comic Life. The comic was a project for LA. Overall, I liked this project a lot, it was fun to draw the pictures. The creativity was endless. I could change the size of each comic strip box, rotate, and make more. Change the font color and size. Add speech bubbles of any type, exclamation, regular, anger, thought, and imagination. I’m looking forward to posting my own Wisdom Tale on the blog too.

Comic Life Wisdom Tales by Kay Y.

 

 

 

 

 

For the past few days my language arts class has been in the computer lab working on making a Comic Life about any of the wisdom tales that we read in class. I chose The Dancing Lass of Anglesey, from Scotland. I really liked this wisdom tale because The Dancing Lass of Anglesey helped the king, but after she helped the king she danced with him as well. This story takes place in a time where battles were fought by dancing, but none of the king’s men could beat the fifteen knights that were about to take his land. The king asked The Dancing Lass of Anglesey to help him beat the fifteen knights. After she danced with all of the knights she danced with the king’s men, and then the king. I also like the ending of this wisdom tale because it really shows that you should fight your own battles. The king asked someone to help him win, and she did but at the end the king also was in the pile of men on the floor.

Squirrel and His Foolish Friends by Davi

Squirrel and His Foolish Friends

 

Once upon a time, there was a forest. In this forest, there lived a tribe of squirrels. All of the squirrels in this tribe were daredevils, except for one squirrel named Bob Scaredy Squirrel.

One day, Bob was talking with his friends, when they heard raucous laughter. Bob’s friends went investigating while he admired a caterpillar as it made its way up a tree. In the middle of its ascent, a lizard jumped from a nearby branch, grabbed the caterpillar, and started to run. As soon as it was out of sight, Bob heard a voice calling his name.

“Bob, come here Bob, you have to see this!!!!” Bob ran past the trees and saw, spread out on a cliff, a colossal log. Squirrels were running all over the log, their claws clacking against the wet wood.  Suddenly, there was a large crack and the log dipped a few feet. All the squirrels gasped, then started laughing. It seemed that the crack only enticed them more to go on the log, not to run away.

“Come on Bob,” Bob’s friends urged. “This log is really cool!!! It even cracked a little bit!!” Of course Bob, being a smart squirrel said no. When Bob’s friends started urging him even more, he started arguing. When the squirrels started chanting his name, Bob gave in.

He started to slowly walk towards the log, trying to not be scared. When he set one foot on the log, Bob started thinking of all the horrible things that could happen to him if he went on the log.

“No!” Bob declared, “I won’t do it!” And with that, Bob walked off into the forest. He walked for a little while, when he heard a large crack, and squirrels screaming, loudly at first, then slowly getting quieter. Bob raced back to find that the log had broken, and all the squirrels had fallen to the rocky ground below.

Moral: Do what’s right. Don’t give in to negative peer pressure.

The Smuggler On Comic Life by Davi

For my project on Comic Life, I chose The Smuggler. The Smuggler is about a smuggler who when trying to cross a border, is stopped by a border control officer. The border control officer then demanded to search the smuggler’s donkey. He does so, but finds nothing. This happens for ten years, and even thought the border control officer know that the juggler is smuggling something, he can’t prove it. In ten years, when the border control officer is retired, he sees the smuggler in the market, and asks him what he was smuggling. The smuggler says that he was smuggling donkeys. The moral of the story is to not overlook the obvious, and to not judge a book by it’s cover.
