  7. 7. The duck was excellent in swimming —better, in fact, than his instructor.<br />
  8. 8. But he made only passing grades in flying and was very poor in running.<br />
  9. 9. This was kept up until his webbed feet were badly worn and he was only average in swimming. <br /> But average was acceptable in school, so nobody worried about that except the duck.<br />Illustrations © 1999 Crystal Springs Books<br />
  10. 10. Since he was slow in running, he had to stay after school and also drop swimming in order to practice running.<br />
  11. 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.<br />Illustrations © 1999 Crystal Springs Books<br />
  12. 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.<br />
  13. 13. He also developed a charley horse from overexertion and then got a C in climbing and a D in running.<br />
  14. 14. The eagle was a problem child and was disciplined severely.<br />
  15. 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.<br />
  16. 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,<br />
  17. 17. and he was valedictorian…<br />
  18. 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.<br />
  19. 19. They apprenticed their children to a badger and later joined the ground hogs and gophers to start a successful private school.<br />
  20. 20. Does this fable have a moral?<br />
  21. 21. LET’S GET GOING!<br />

  23. 23. NOT THE STUDENTS WE WANT TO HAVE
  24. 24. NOT THE STUDENTS OF OUR DREAMS</li></ul>WE HAVE TO TEACH THE STUDENTS WE HAVE….<br />(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)<br />
