Everyone loves the "Little Old Lady" books by Lucille Colandro, children and teachers both. This product is a great companion to There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Clover! by Lucille Colandro. This product includes materials to help children retell the story by putting the objects she swallowed in her belly one by one. We have also included several response journals for you to use as well a skills based math game.
We have included retelling pieces for this story for you in both color and black and white. The children can make their own old ladies to aid in retelling or you can make the color version to use year after year. While reading the story, ask children to pay particular attention to the order of events. If you have extra copies of the story, children can look back in the story to help them with the sequencing of their story pieces. 


After the pieces are in the correct order, children can start to retell their story by putting the pieces into the old lady's belly.

The old lady danced with a leprechaun and out popped a rainbow!
We have included three different journals for  you to choose from: Why do you think the old lady swallowed a clover?
What was your favorite part of the story and why?
What do you think the old lady will swallow next?
Magical Math is a great game to help review and reinforce the math skills that have been taught throughout the school year.
Children will take turns choosing a card from the top of the pile, reading the card, and then answering the math problem. 
If they get the correct answer, they can move their marker the correct number of spaces. 
Below are some examples of the cards that are included in the game and the various questions that are asked.
We have also included some specialty cards. Some of them are lucky and some not so much! Keep your eye out!

Thanks for visiting again this week. We hope your enjoy our retelling and math activity to go along with There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Clover. Have a great week!
