PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

*Completely revamped March 2014*

Teaching tall tales is always one of my favorite units in my classroom. My students simply adore the tall tale characters and stories. Therefore, to help my students with their comprehension and understanding of the story elements, I created this packet.

Included in this packet you will find over 25 vocabulary picture cards that will help your students "see" the setting of these famous tall tales. These cards each have a "real life image." This will help students visualize what is taking place in the stories. {This is also great for ESL students!}

I also wrote three student friendly magazines to really make these stories come to life. I included both color and black and white versions of the magazine "Tall Tale Times." In these magazines, students will get an up close look at the lives and pictures of John Henry, Mike Fink, and Pecos Bill.

To really make this unit come to life I also included 8 literacy centers. The activities practice the following skills: suffixes, antonyms, punctuation, adjectives, ABC Order, segmenting words into syllables, writing "how to" stories, and more.

The characters included in this packet include: Pecos Bill, Mike Fink, Slue-foot Sue, John Henry, Paul Bunyan, and Davy Crockett.

With TONS of recording sheets, extensions and activities, you don't want to miss this unit. Your students will LOVE reading and learning about the tall tale characters.

{This unit IS aligned to the Common Core}
