My students LOVE these "old lady" activities. They love "feeding" the old lady puppets, and I love the rhyming, word identification, sequencing, and story telling that I know teaches them important early literacy skills. I also love leaving these sets for substitute teachers.
Introduce or review story elements with There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bat by Lucille Colandro.
This resource includes the following resources:
- Story Telling Set
- Paper Bag Puppet (color and black and white) with old lady and everything she swallowed
- Sequencing Cards (color and black and white)
- Word Cards
Please note: The picture book is not included with this unit. If you don’t have it in your collection, you can check it out from your local library.
