I f you are wondering where I get the stories for this unit. Please check out my post from last year by clicking here. You will find a few other Tall Tale activities along with a couple of free downloads. You can also click the image below to head there:
This year, I also bought Hope King's Tall Tale unit. I absolutely LOVED all of her activities. This little guy is from her unit. I decided to create a summarizing page to go in the middle of her adorable Pecos Bill!
This poster is also from Hope's unit. One of my teacher buddies had the idea of using a bandana to tie the posters together. Love how it turned out!
We ended our week with a Tall Tale graph. It was the perfect way to integrate literacy and math.

It looks like our Texas cold weather may behind us. It's starting to feel more like spring around here. I LOVE that our Texas bluebonnets have started blooming. I found this lovely little flower in my mom's front yard.
