The Bundle of Sticks - one of Aesop's Fables is perfect to be used as a base of a language arts lesson plan.

Fables are a great way to teach handwriting, spelling, writing techniques, grammar and punctuation. I have explained a Ten Step method through which you can use any fable and create an integrated approach to language arts.

Read the step by step way in which you can use any Aesops Fable and create a homeschool language arts lesson plan around it.

The Bundle of Sticks

An old man on the point of death summoned his sons around him to give them some parting advice. He ordered his servants to bring in a bundle of sticks, and said to his eldest son: "Break it." 

The son strained and strained, but with all his efforts was unable to break the Bundle. The other sons also tried, but none of them was successful. 

"Untie the faggots," said the father, "and each of you take a stick." 

When they had done so, he called out to them: 

"Now, break," and each stick was easily broken. "You see my meaning," said their father.
