This is a 53 page bundled Unit for Reading and Writing Tall Tales.
The unit was designed to be used with Mary Pope Osborne's American Tall Tale Book. Recommend to start the reading unit before the writing unit so that students have a good foundation. This was written for a fourth grade class, but could be adapted for various grade levels.
The Reading Unit has 9 lessons with printables for students as well as teacher answer guides. Each lesson has reading group work that can be done in small groups or independently.
The Writing Unit comes with 6 lessons with a student Tall Tale Writing Packet that can be printed and given to each student. The Writing unit focuses on students picking a 21st century problem for their Tall Tale Character to solve. Students LOVED this unit.
