It’s just in time for back to school. There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Books is the title. Below I will share a free dice game printable and story props to match the book.
We love the Old Lady Books. Each book in the series follows a predictable pattern. If you have read one of the old lady books you know she will be eating odd things to spit out a surprise at the end. There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Books continues the pattern of eating and spitting out something related to the theme at the end. In this story she swallows some books, a pen, a pencil case, a ruler, folder, chalk, and a bag… Until she hops on the school bus, says a cheer, and out pops a ______ (O, I can’t tell you, that would spoil the ending for you). The illustrations are well done and the rhyming text is always a hit with grades Pre-K to first grade. It is a great read for back to school. Do a search on Google for There Was An Old Lady Printables and you will find many activities you can use at home or in the classroom with this book and many other Old Lady Books.
I have two pages of free printables to share. The first page is a dice game. Students take turns rolling the dice to collect all the things the lady swallowed in the story. First person to get all the story pieces, wins. Page 2 of the file contains story pieces you can use with our Old Lady baggie and Apron Pattern. Click here to learn about the pattern. You will also see the Old Lady Apron here.
