Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Tall Tales Opus - Section 5: Presenting

 

A fun way to present either the Exaggeration Story in the warm up, or the child's Tall Tale itself, is to add a "slide show" component.  This is an idea I may require of all the students the next time I teach the lesson.  The example presented here is the prototype, so to speak.  The students create a little "slide show" either on paper or computer, and as they read their story, a classmate keeps the pages/images moving.  This mini-supplement is a variation in regular story writing.

Figurative Language with Goldilocks
4th Grade ELA » Reading Strategies: Beginning of the Year
Big Idea: Other versions of a popular story are so fun to read aloud. In this case we use a different story to compare versions and explore how an author uses figurative language in their books. Students will begin to practice slowing down for figurative language.
