There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly

There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly - Simms Taback

I believe this is a great book that I would use with kindergarten through second grade. It is a fun read that can keep them entertained, especially when one uses resources along with it. One such example of these resources would be puppets and another would be a song. As for how I would use this book, I would personally use it for sequencing purposes. This book is all about the order that the old lady swallowed things in. Therefore, after reading the book I could test the students’ comprehension of the book by getting them to put some form of manipulatives that represent the animals she swallowed in the order she swallowed them. This would work as a quick and easy assessment while giving me a quick overview of who was paying attention.
