Tall Tales Story Pattern. How to write tall tales! A simple story pattern that can be used to help students write their own tall tale. They can fill in the blanks to create a story sketch, which they can then elaborate and expand on to create their own personal tall tale. Also includes a handout on "What is a Tall Tale?" which they can use as a reference or put in an interactive notebook, and a graphic organizer to use to help create their main character. I have also added a writing paper on the last page for a final draft. Good to use as an introduction or a follow up to a unit on tall tales, or after reading a tall tale such as Paul Bunyan or Pecos Bill. Helps students avoid writer's block by scaffolding and gives them the confidence to complete their own story. Writing practice is essential to the CCSS (common core state standards ) in Language Arts.
