Designed to complement the story There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly, this exciting activity pack from Kids Club English can be used to support children’s learning in a variety of ways. Use with or without the story to learn about animals, support colour and shape recognition, practise counting, introduce sounds, letters and rhymes and build on literacy and vocabulary skills.
For videos of the story and other related songs and resources see:
Following activities in the pack, children will also develop fine motor skills through colouring, tracing, cutting and sticking to create the various crafts whilst being encouraged to listen, follow instructions and develop social skills.
Activities are specifically designed to allow for differentiation of ability and context and come complete with COMPREHENSIVE ACTIVITY SUGGESTIONS.
This pack includes ALL of the following:
