Product Description

Do you read ”There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Pie” by Allison Jackson?

It’s perfect for practicing the “sequencing and retelling a story” standards.

With that in mind, I designed this quick, easy and fun storytelling “slider” craftivity, that will help your students retell the tale in the proper order.

Children color the objects on the “slider strip” then cut and glue it together.

As they pull on the end of the “slider” the various pictures go through the ”mouth window”, so that children can take turns retelling the story to a partner or reading buddy, then take their “Little Old Lady” craftivity home to share with their family, once again practicing these standards.

Storytelling sliders are also an easy & interesting way to assess comprehension.

I’ve included a “sequence the story” worksheet for this, where students color and trim the picture “windows” then glue them in the correct order on the blank worksheet.

I introduce the lesson by reading ”I Know An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Pie”, then share my completed "slider craft” with my students.

So that you can quickly and easily make an example, I’ve included a full-color slider pattern.

After I read the story, we retell the tale together using the picture prompts on my slider. I have them guess which object they think the little old lady ate next, before I pull the picture through the “window”.

My students now know what’s expected of them, and are very excited to transition to making a slider of their own.

I’ve also included a “Here’s What Happened…” writing prompt worksheet, as another way to check comprehension plus practice sequential writing, hopefully using a variety of ordinal numbers or other transitions.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy storytelling sliders as much as mine do.
