Tall Tales and Paul Bunyan
I used 12x18 paper and cut it lengthwise. We did a directed drawing with a black crayon and then colored. The paper was folded in half so it made it easier for them to keep the top and bottom in proportion. I told them to make his shirt stop at the middle and make his pants go all the way to the bottom. They turned out sooo cute!
I had a parent draw lines with a Sharpie for the kids to write their stories so it really would be a "tall" tale. I gave them some sentence starters to get them going. Some of the ones we used were, "Did you ever hear about...", "He was so strong..." and their favorite, "When he was a baby..."
Hopefully I'll have the bulletin board up by tomorrow and I'll take another picture of the whole thing.
