Updated Old Lady

Just a quick note to let you know I’ve added some story retelling cards into my Little Old Lady who Swallowed a Pie pack.Β  Last week, I laid my book and my retelling cards on my desk and then I couldn’t find them…turns out, I think I knocked them in the trash can!Β  Along with all my other old lady books–I am now in the process of re-collecting them all–sigh…

So I had to remake my retelling cards and thought I’d better include them all for you too!

There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie

Thanksgiving is one of my most favorite times of year!Β  I love reading the stories about the old ladies who swallowed different things to my kiddos, but There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie has got to be my favorite!Β  I got my file out on Monday to plan for next week and by today, it’s disappeared!Β  I have no idea where it is, but I’m hoping that it returns tomorrow!Β  I’ve probably put it in a safe place (I have lots of those).Β  😦

In the file were all my props for retelling the story, so I had to make some new ones.Β  I have some older ones posted on my blog from the last few years, but I was feeling the need to create a new old lady and update her a little.Β  I found these great graphics from Scrappin Doodles and decided to make a new set of props.

You can check out this 3 page activity (complete with directions for use and suggestions for use in Literacy Work Stations) by clicking on the picture above.

The Little Old Lady who swallowed a pie…

I’ve posted this little old lady before (either last Thanksgiving or the one before it…Β  Here are some pictures of her assembled…

(She’s really easy–just color, cut and tape on a sandwich sized ziploc baggie with the top inch cut off)

Old Lady Site

Here is a site I came across with more Little Old Lady ideas, some songs, and a listing of all the variations of the book that are available currently.Β  You can search at the library or on for many variations on this title.Β  I think I spent $30 one year buying used copies of these books on and I love all of them!Β  I’m always looking for more!! πŸ™‚
