Aesop Fables: The Lion and the Mouse Guided Reading Script

plus lesson plan including teaching input, synopsis, guided reading script, discussion points and suggestions for further work.

Cast of 6, around 10 minutes reading time

Lesson: 20 – 30 minutes, depending on how much of the lesson plan is used. The material could, of course, be split over a series of sessions.

The script can be used either as a guided reading script (6 readers) or as a mini performance (cast of 6) and could be used either in a Literacy or PSHE class (owing to the life lessons contained within the text).

This is the first of a series of adapted Aesop Fable scripts - more to follow! ALL AT SPECIAL INTRODUCTORY HALF PRICE!

Sample Text

Lion:                Because sometimes you need to listen to someone else, take their advice

Mouse:            However small they are! And that’s exactly what he did!

Lion:                Yes, I listened

Teacher:          And then was ‘big’ enough to act on that advice! See, sometimes you can become big by the smallest actions!

Pupil 2:            (To Lion) So you let the mouse go?

Lion:                That’s right! Was I the champ? Or was I the champ?

Mouse:            (Coughing) Eh hem! Small matter of what I said to you?

Lion:                Ah yes! You mean, helping me out at some future event

Mouse:            When you, my large friend, might actually need me!

Pupil 1:            (To Lion) And did you? I mean, need your wee friend?

Lion:                Oh, I most certainly did! I wouldn’t be standing here talking to you today if I hadn’t let my rodent friend here go!

Narrator:         So, what happened?

Lion:                I got caught by hunters, is what happened! Soon after bidding farewell to Mouse here, I managed to fall into a trap and get all tied up in knots!

Mouse:            (Laughing) How very careless of you!

Lion:                No laughing matter, I can assure you! If you, Mouse, hadn’t come along and rescued me

Pupil 2:            (Gasping) What? You, a mighty lion, rescued by a mini mouse?

Lion:                Indeed. And I’m not ashamed to admit it.

Teacher:          Which makes you an even bigger, grander lion in my opinion!

Pupil 1:            And mine!

Pupil 2:            (Spluttering) But, but, wasn’t it just the tiniest bit humiliating – being rescued by a mere mouse?

Mouse:            (Sighing) Oh dear! I can see we might just have to spell this one out!
