Tall Tales Grammar Story: Johnny Appleseed

Different! Motivating! Easy to Use!

Try a Tall Tale Grammar story to practice grammar and spelling skills with intermediate and middle school students.

These tales focus on the most common errors in homophones, subject-verb agreement, apostrophe, capitalization, punctuation, and irregular verbs and plurals.

Tall Tales Grammar Stories are great for regular English and ESL students because they improve grammar, spelling, reading, and writing.

They can be used in learning centers, as homework, seatwork, and/or preparation for state writing tests.

Simple to use and to grade, if desired, each story fits on one, two-sided piece of paper. It contains sentences with only one grammatical error in each sentence. Students enjoy trying to find them, individually or in teams.

Every story includes an ANSWER KEY PLUS an explanation for each correction. A short Writing Prompt is added for extra credit, and a corrected version in paragraph form is also included.
