Mississippi: Mike Fink

I had all of these grand plans with Mike Fink.   Mike Fink is a tall tale from Mississippi. He’s braggart and a brawler and a brat. Hey look, alliteration.
I created this nice cute printable for what Mike Fink fought, and brought over all sorts of paper for them to create what he was going to fight, told them “USE YOUR IMAGINATION!”

And the grabbed the colored pencils.

And they drew alligators, and dragons.  And more alligators.

And no one grabbed any of the paper and made fabulous creations.

They drew pictures.

But they did tell fabulous stories about them.

Mike Fink found the dragon and it was eating a town.  He grabbed his bow and arrows and shot it as fast as he could.  Then he ran and jumped on it.

Some days you just need to go with the simple.
