There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Leaves!

Who LOVES the "old lady" books? We do...and so do our students!

This weekend, we are offering our entire pack for There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Leaves for FREE in our TpT store! The pack has 24 pages of retelling, writing, and match activities to go along with this fun book for you to use in your classroom. We hope you love it!

We have a color copy of the old lady in the pack as well as a reproducible one for students to color.

We laminate the lady, cut the laminating out of her mouth, cut a backside, and staple them together.

Here is a child coloring her old lady:

We also have color and reproducible copies of the objects the lady eats in the story.

Here a child is looking back in the book so she colors her pictures the right color.

After examining the book, she gets to work!

Now, she is ready to eat!

The children retell the story by sequencing the items that she eats while they feed them to the lady. They think it's hilarious that they can feed her and see the pictures in her belly!

The children love to tell the story together or take turns being the storyteller. We like to put our color copies in our reading center for more fun practice later so the children can bring their own ladies home with them.

Not pictured, but also included in this (temporarily) free pack are writing follow-ups to the story and a related fall-themed complete math lesson on tally marks and data collection.

If you LOVE this lady, you can find similar packs in our story for the following books:

Soon, we will also be adding There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Books and Lucille Colandro's new version of There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly!

Head on over to our Facebook page, follow the "Fun & Free" tab on the side, and hop through the pages of several teachers' pages to snag up some more goodies today and tomorrow only! Have fun!
