Aesops Fables

We are loving the Grammar of Spelling and Logos Cursive but I am struggling to teach Aesops Fables as the instructions are not modified for the homeschool setting. Are there any plans to update the instructions for the home setting? Thanks!

I actually used it in my classroom (public school) and it went well. Thank you for allowing me to bring this to a classroom which is not use to imitation in writing.
