Your students will have fun retelling the story “There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Books!” (by Lucille Colandro) with our cute little old lady and school-themed pictures to put in her belly! Several writing response journals are also included for students to reflect upon or extend the story. This listing also includes a school-themed math lesson that focuses on numerals and sets from 0 to 10! All of these activities would be great additions to your back-to-school lessons!

Our students absolutely love feeding their old lady these school items and dramatizing this story when sequencing the events and retelling the book from memory and then completing the numeral to set activities for math to go right along with the literature of the day.
