This file includes 3 pages of a PDF document which will guide students through analyzing a character from a Tall Tale story (i.e. Paul Bunyan, Johnny Appleseed, Calamity Jane, etc) by writing a short poem. The first page shows an example using the character of Paul Bunyan. The second page is meant to be cut in half and used as a rough draft to guide students through the parts of the poem that they need. The 2nd page is a full page final draft for students to copy their completed poem onto and draw a picture of the Tall Tale character at the bottom using the pre-drawn head.
The poem asks students to use descriptive words, will allow them to practice prepositional phrases, and practice using a superlative phrase at the bottom.
