Here are some activities I have in my Tpt store that will help you get through Thanksgiving. 🙂
And some after Thanksgiving activities that will begin on December 2nd in my classroom:

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. 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! 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!

Thanksgiving is one of my most favorite times of year! 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! I got my file out on Monday to plan for next week and by today, it’s disappeared! I have no idea where it is, but I’m hoping that it returns tomorrow! I’ve probably put it in a safe place (I have lots of those). 😦
In the file were all my props for retelling the story, so I had to make some new ones. 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. 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.
I’ve posted this little old lady before (either last Thanksgiving or the one before it…https://kpoindexter.wordpress.com/2008/11/13/little-old-lady-printables/). 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)
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. You can search at the library or on amazon.com for many variations on this title. I think I spent $30 one year buying used copies of these books on amazon.com and I love all of them! I’m always looking for more!! 🙂
