How I Spent My Summer Vacation


This book is awesome to read at the beginning of the year, but can be read again throughout the year and is just as much fun. In this lesson, students will research the history of tall tale postcards and create their own. After all, Wallace sends Aunt Fern a postcard to explain his exaggerated adventure. In the end of the book, Wallace explains that he can hardly wait for show and tell. Kids will love letting their imaginations go wild as they write their very own tall tale or a sequel. This is a great lesson plan for grades 3rd through 5th and includes four lessons.

Lesson plan includes:
Tale Tall Definition Poster
Lesson Outline
Truth or Exaggeration Game
Postcard Template
Graphic Organizer
Final Paper Stationary
Hallway Poster
