  • 6. To make it easier to administer the curriculum, all the animals took all the subjects.

  • 7. The duck was excellent in swimming —better, in fact, than his instructor.
  • 8. But he made only passing grades in flying and was very poor in running.
  • 9. This was kept up until his webbed feet were badly worn and he was only average in swimming.
    But average was acceptable in school, so nobody worried about that except the duck.

  • 10. Since he was slow in running, he had to stay after school and also drop swimming in order to practice running.
  • 11. The rabbit started at the top of the class in running but had a nervous breakdown because of so much make-up work in swimming.

  • 12. The squirrel was excellent in climbing until he developed frustration in the flying class, where his teacher made him start from the ground up instead of the treetop down.
  • 13. He also developed a charley horse from overexertion and then got a C in climbing and a D in running.
  • 14. The eagle was a problem child and was disciplined severely.
  • 15. In the climbingclass he beat all the others to the top of the tree but insisted on using his own way to get there.
  • 16. At the end of the year, an abnormal eel that could swim exceedingly well, and also run, climb, and fly a little, had the highest average,
  • 17. and he was valedictorian…
  • 18. The prairie dogs stayed out of school and fought the tax levy because the administration would not add digging and burrowing to the curriculum.
  • 19. They apprenticed their children to a badger and later joined the ground hogs and gophers to start a successful private school.
  • 20. Does this fable have a moral?
  • 21. LET’S GET GOING!
  • 22. WE HAVE TO TEACH THE STUDENTS WE HAVE
    • NOT THE STUDENTS WE USED TO HAVE
    • 23. NOT THE STUDENTS WE WANT TO HAVE
    • 24. NOT THE STUDENTS OF OUR DREAMS
    WE HAVE TO TEACH THE STUDENTS WE HAVE….
    (I am sorry I forget the original source except that am 100 % sure that this came from one of my training. So, whoever you are thank you so much for inspiring me to be the best teacher that I could be)
