This is a language activity companion pack to the story "There Was A Cold Lady Who Swallowed Some Snow" by Lucille Colandro.
9 engaging activities are included in this wonderful set!
- Feed the Old Lady story participation: Give students the pictures of what the Old Lady eats and during the story let them feed the Old Lady to help with engagement.
- The Old Lady did and did not eat sorting mat: Students can independently sort what the Old Lady did and did not eat. Can be done as a group activity great for yes/no comprehension, story recall, or story retell.
- Winter clothes BINGO: 4 bingo cards are included as well as a set of calling cards. Students must mark off spaces based on descriptions of winter clothing (e.g., something you wear on your head to keep you warm).
- Story comprehension board game: A fun and engaging way for students to practice wh- questions and story comprehension. Students flip a card and answer the question before moving the number of spaces stated on the card. You can either read the question and wait for the student to answer or show them the card and let them select the correct answer. 23 comprehension questions are included with the board game and set of markers. A visual prompt for the temporal concepts "before" and "after" is also included to help students.
