There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Leaves: Essential Questions and Story Recalling Activities. Activities are based on the book written by Lucille Colandro and illustrated by Jared Lee and should be done following the reading of the story.
Vocabulary Cards: Print, laminate, and display. I put mine in a pocket chart. We discuss vocabulary before we read the story. During journal time, my little ones will pick a word, write it in their journals, and illustrate the word.
Story retelling cards: Print, laminate, and cut out. Give each student a picture to hold during the story. When that student’s part is read he/she will hold up the picture. Print off two copies and play a memory type game.
Old lady story pieces: smaller pieces to use with a puppet. Use the old lady head and a paper bag to make a puppet if you do not have one. There are several pieces of chalk so several students can participate.
There Was an Old Lady Emergent Reader. A simpler version of the story to encourage retelling by young readers.
There Was an Old Lady Essential Questions. Students can circle or color the correct answer.
Story sequencing cut and glue picture in order of the things the old lady swallowed in the story.
