There was an Old Lady Who Swallowed….

Boy that old lady eats the strangest things!

We read the Little Old Lady who Swallowed some Leaves as part of a scarecrow unit!   Kids love the story!

I used the pattern found in this packet to make little old lady puppets for all my students.  All I did was print the pattern and glue the body to a small white bag (purchased from Michael’s).  I stapled the head to the top of the bag.  When the students drop an item into the old lady’s mouth, it falls into the bag.  So fun!

I used the printout of the shirt, pants, and pole found in the packet…  but I used string for the rope, leaf foam stickers for the leaf, filler for the hay, and a pumpkin eraser for the pumpkin.

Once they retell the story with friends at school they can take it home for so much more fun and retelling practice.
