Literary Foundations: Tall Tale Comparisons

One Night a Week… One Family… One Read Aloud… Priceless!

Comparing 2 Tall Tales
  • Making the family connection: Discuss: the slide above.
  • Materials: family learning journals/paper, pencils, colored pencils, and/or crayons. Remind them to open their journals to the next available page and date it. Don’t forget to have them label the top of the page with today’s learning topic/skill.
  • Today’s literary connection: Comparing 2 Tall Tales. Guided enquiry: Ask them to open their journals and re-create the Pecos Bill and Paul Bunyan Venn diagram.
  • Next: Follow this storytime link for Paul Bunyan and this storytime link for Pecos Bill, then listen/watch the Tall tale videos. Remind them to fill in the Venn diagram as they are listening for the tale’s details.
  • Finally, invite them to sketch their favorite scenes from each of the tall tales.
