Everyone loves this silly old lady! She is always swallowing something with a surprise at the end of the story! These stories are great for the skills of retelling and sequencing. In this pack we have included an old lady and story pieces for the children to color and then retell the story with their friends. We have also included a color version that the children can use during center time too!

There are also three journal prompts included in this pack for the children to practice their writing skills.

What was your favorite part of the story and why?

Why do you think the old lady swallowed a chick?

What do you think the old lady will swallow next?

This pack also includes a math lesson for addition and subtraction. During the exploration part of the lesson, children work in cooperative groups to match a bow (number sentence) to the correct basket (with treats in it). The baskets show either the joining of sets or a set with some of the objects crossed out.

After exploration and teacher modeling, the children work in cooperative groups to put eggs in their correct basket. Each egg has a number sentence on it (addition or subtraction) and the baskets all have a number on the bow. Children will match each egg to the basket with the correct sum or difference. This is a great activity to help with the children's fluency in their math facts as well as their ability to differentiate between the plus and minus symbols.

We have also included a recording sheet for the children to write all the number sentences they placed in the correct basket.

You can have your children complete an assessment too!

We hope you enjoy this pack as much as our children do! 
Happy Easter and Happy Spring Break!
