There Was an Old Lady

Hello Everyone!
Don't you love those "There was an Old Lady Who Swallowed" books by Lucille Colandro?  My kids love them!  They are great for sequencing, text connection, imagination exploration, etc!  I stumbled across a new one the other day, "There was an Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Books" and decided to do a quick ultra mini unit about it.  As you can probably tell, this book is about the old lady swallowing school supplies, so it is going to be good for vocabulary as well as all the other things! Great for beginning of school!
 This little unit contains some quick anchor charts for observations, and sequencing, a quick vowel/consonant recording sheet, a vocabulary word/pic matching activity,some reader's response activities, and a craft connection with patterns for the kiddos!

There are so many more things you can do with this book!  Let me know what you think or if you have some other fun ideas!!

Have a great day!
