I have designed this Interactive Notebook to be used with any Tall Tale! I decided to do so because I didn’t want to create a product that required a specific Tall Tale. I wanted to fit every teacher’s needs. Therefore, I have created the following piece to be used with as many Tall Tales as you see fit. These interactive pieces may also be used in two formats—Interactive Journal or a Lap Book. I have included specific teaching directions and photo samples. I recommend using three Tall Tales for this Interactive Journal. There are tons of activities to complete for the Tall Tales requiring about three weeks to complete! You of course can use as much or as little from the provided Interactive Journal as need be. I also recommend having students use the headings on the following pages as indicators of another skill being taught. Students should cut and glue these right before each prompt. I also recommend students writing in the date as each lesson begins. Students can also glue in specific Common Core Standards when appropriate. You will see all of this in the photo samples. I have also included a Write Your Own Tall Tale piece to go along with your Writing Block! I hope you enjoy!
