This fairy tale is about a sly fox and a poor and resentful rabbit. Fox took away a house from rabbit. Rabbit was complaining to the animals he has met that fox took his house away. Animals wanted to help rabbit, but fox was frightening everyone. Only a little roaster was not afraid of fox and kicked her out of the house, where he settled down with a rabbit.
Educational potential / Learning Outcomes
Children were talking about characters‘ actions and decided that no one wants to be as a „fox“, but everyone wanted to be as brave as a „roaster“, so they could help the weak ones. Children have drawn a conclusions that if you ask politely for a help there always will be friends, who would help you in a trouble.

When beautiful spring arrived, fox’s house melted down and rabbit’s remained. Fox asked rabbit to let her in to the bask and kicked him out of his house at all.
Rabbit walks all alone, cries and meets the dogs.
“Woof-woof, why are you crying, rabbit?” the dogs asked..
“Leave me alone, how can I not cry? I had a wooden house and fox had an icy one, she asked to let her into my house and kicked me out!”
“Don’t cry, rabbit, now we will kick her out,” said dogs.
“No, you won’t!”
“Yes, we will!”
When they arrived, dogs started to bark.
“Woof-woof, fox, get out of the house!”
But fox only replied, “I’ll jump out and sock you!”
Dogs got scared and ran away.
Rabbit keeps walking all alone, cries and meets a bear.
“Why are you crying, rabbit?” the bear asked.
“Leave me alone, how can I not cry? I had a wooden house and fox had an icy one, she asked to let her into my house and kicked me out!”
“Don’t cry, rabbit, now I’ll kick her out,” said bear.
“No, you won’t, dogs tried to kick her out but had no luck!”
“Yes, I will!”
So they went to chase a fox off.
“Fox, get out of the house!”
But fox only replied, “I’ll jump out and sock you!
Bear got scared and ran away.
Rabbit keeps walking all alone, cries and meets a bull.
“Why are you crying?” asked bull.
“Leave me alone, how can I not cry? I had a wooden house and fox had an icy one, she asked to let her into my house and kicked me out!”
“Don’t cry, rabbit, now I’ll kick her out,” the bull said.
“No, you won’t, the dogs and the bear tried to kick her out but had no luck!”
“Yes, I will!”
So they went to chase a fox off.
“Fox, get out of the house!”
But fox only replied, “I’ll jump out and sock you!
Bull got scared and walked away.
Rabbit keeps walking all alone, cries and meets a roaster with a scythe.
“Cock-a-doodle-do, why are you crying?” the rooster asked.
“Leave me alone, how can I not cry? I had a wooden house and fox had an icy one, she asked to let her into my house and kicked me out!”
“Don’t cry, rabbit, now I’ll kick her out,” said a rooster.
“No, you won’t, dogs, bear and bull tried to kick her out but had no luck!”
“Yes, I will!”
So they went to chase a fox off.
“Cock-a-doodle-do,I am coming with a scythe, planing to cut off the fox, get out of the house!”
“I am coming,” replied fox.
The Rooster continued, “cock-a-doodle-do,I am coming with a scythe, planing to cut off the fox, get out of the house!”
“I am getting dressed,” said fox.
The Rooster said again, “cock-a-doodle-do,I am coming with a scythe, planing to cut off the fox, get out of the house!”
Fox came outside and roaster cut her off with a scythe.
Rooster and rabbit settled down together in the house. That’s the end of a fairy tale.


One Lesson Plan
Dedicated to the week “No bullying“. The topic „Having a friend is awesome“.

1. Round table talks about friendship. Children share their thoughts about how they understand friendship, who is a real friend, how to communicate with friends, how to explain to them why it is important to have a good friend, support, compassionate and not to upset others.
2. Game „Help a friend“. Preceptor shows children a card, in which only one letter is written (pre-school children already knows letters). Not every child manages to do a task as fast as other children. Children, whom manage to think of words easier, should help those, who cannot deal with this task. As a result, they help a friend.
3. Listening and discussion of a fairy tale „Fox, rabbit and rooster“. Children listen to a fairy tale and then answer to the following questions: what is this fairy tale about? Which character did you like mostly? How did they behave? And etc.
4. Drawing of fairy tale characters. Children draw, applique, model fairy tale‘s characters and episodes. The exposition of created works is held.
