Pecos Bill { Free Pack }

Tall tales are a great way to keep your  2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students  engaged in learning, while still ensuring they meet the necessary standards and skills that must be covered. 

Today let’s focus on Pecos Bill and how this FREE download can help you in your classroom or with your homeschoolers.

Gauge students initial knowledge by starting with a KWL chart. Once you’ve done that, you can then read through the story . That’s when the real fun begins!

Take retelling your tall tale one step further by letting your students create a headband. These are great for reader’s theater, taking home to share with family members, and more! 

Have students work on their basic comprehension! They can retell the story, share what they learned about the characters by drawing and/or writing, share the most important events, let others know what they learned, work on main idea and details, focus on the setting, answer basic WH questions, and discus the characters, settings, and events that took place. 

Let’s not forget about the characters! Your students will use descriptive words to recall what they know about the characters, compare and contrast characters, use descriptive words, and add details to pictures of the characters. 

These older students need plenty of practice of figurative language! Let them find examples from within the story or have them write their own. 

A great extension activity is to let your early or fast finishers focus on their favorite part of the story. 

A fortune teller (or cootie catcher) is also included! Students love to complete these with a partner. 

Your students are going to love this tall tale lesson!

Athena Myth { Free Pack }

Myths are a great way to get your 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students excited about learning! When you incorporate this FREE Athena resource into your lessons, your students are sure to be having fun and engaged in their learning. With the activities in this freebie, your students will learn more about characters, sequence of events, various comprehension skills, writing skills, story plot, and more! Stick around for all the details!

Now let’s take a close look at everything included in the “Athena” myth freebie.
Your students will start with a KWL chart to show what they already know and want to know about Athena. You can come back to this later to add everything they’ve learned.

Next you’ll start right in on the comprehension skills. Students will work on sequencing, characters, setting, events, main ideas and details, and retell. 

Extend student learning by asking them to focus on what they learned during the story. Go a step further and have students use descriptive words to share more about Athena and everything she goes through during the myth. You can also compare her to other characters. 

Move back to cover some more comprehension skills! (You can NEVER have too many comprehension skills!) Ask students to share the theme, give more details, answer basic comprehension questions, discuss the setting, and to even share their favorite part of the story – ensuring they justify their reasoning. 

Their favorite activity of the entire resource may very well be the cootie catch (or fortune teller) that is included. 

And of course we can’t forget to work some writing skills into our story! Ask students to be descriptive by using adjectives, write a summary, and share what the character may be thinking.

Your students are going to love learning about myths in the classroom! All of the great printable worksheets are ready for you, so you simply have to print and go!
