Are you teaching a Tall Tales unit or looking for something a little different to teach RL 2.2? We chose to teach RL 2.2 with a western theme this year and use Tall Tales. It was so much fun! I created these close reading passages for 4 popular Tall Tale characters we had decided to study: Johnny Appleseed, Pecos Bill, Paul Bunyan, and Annie Oakley. I created a separate sheet for each Tall Tale for my kiddos to annotate the texts as we did our multiple close readings. I also added a separate sheet of text dependent questions for students for each tall tale. These passages make a great addition to a Tall Tales Unit or for close reading practice.
Also, check out my Tall Tales Centers.....I use Daily 5 so I created these to use during my literacy block.
*These are for single classroom use only. Thank you!
