There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Books


The hardest thing is preparing meaningful activities for subs.  I finally received each of my There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed... books from Scholastic.  Overjoyed.  I'm in the process of creating lessons that can be used by the classroom teacher or left for a substitute on those unpredictable days!  

Each book in the series aligns with a theme that will take kids on a fantastic journey through predictable texts throughout the school year.  Each lesson is aligned to common core standards and units will progress as the year moves on!

I've opened a fan page on Facebook. I'd like to giveaway a copy of this unit.  All you have to do is "like" my fan page {here}.  When you are on my page, look for the graphic of this unit and write in the comments "GULP"!  I'll leave announce a winner tomorrow! 

Hope you are enjoying November!!

Looks great! (both the unit and the FB page.) My kids LOVE these books! They eat them up! Gulp!
(but the best part is the burping them back up!)
