One of my students favorite memories of my class is during Halloween, when I would use The Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly for storytelling. This is a simple story to remember. This interactive flip book with the activity of the old lady who can swallow anything makes for a great way to teach sequencing and other literacy skills.
