What makes folktales and tall tales enjoyable is they are an "exaggerated," fun way to learn a life lesson-saving us all time from learning the hard way, right? Help students learn what cultures value by having them read the tales they tell!
Students will read ANY folktale/tall tale, analyze the point of view, author's purpose, and the literary/story elements. In addition, they will make check marks and finish sentence starters that will cause them to reflect on the story they read. Finally, they will reflect on the characteristics that set this genre apart. Designed for multiple uses, multi-use.
Flexible use options:
