“There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Rose” by Lucille Colandro, is a student favorite. They really enjoy this collection of stories, whic are perfect for practicing the “sequencing and retelling a story” standards.

With that in mind, I designed these quick, easy and fun storytelling wheels, with matching puzzles.

There are full color patterns to use in a language arts center, as well as samples to share, plus black & white patterns, so your students can make their own.

There are 3 wheel “cover” options to choose from. Choose your favorite, or give students a choice.

When everyone is done, practice telling “There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Rose” using the manipulative.

Simply turn the wheel & call on a child to explain what’s happening in that graphic.

Afterwards, have students pick a partner and take turns retelling the story to each other. Sometimes we do this with our older, reading buddies.

This is also a quick, easy & fun way to check comprehension as a whole group.

For writing practice, and a different comprehension check, have students complete the “Here’s What Happened” writing prompt worksheet, then color it.

I’ve included a color copy, so you can do this as a whole group activity with little ones.

For more reinforcement, as well as another way to assess comprehension, I’ve also included 2, “color, cut & glue” puzzle worksheets.

Use the two, full-color versions for an independent puzzle center, where children arrange the pieces on a 5-piece pie grid.

Another super-fun thing for students to do is to play “Speed”.

The puzzles can also be played as a game with dice.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a fun-filled time, practicing these standards using wheels & puzzles.
