My favorite books and supplies to start our preschool year!

Saturday, September 3, 2011



  • Read "I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie" by Alison Jackson
  • Before you read…
    1. Have the kids name foods they eat during Thanksgiving.
    2. Let them draw their favorite Thanksgiving food on a paper plate.
    3. Label the plate with the food's name.
    4. Arrange these on the table to resemble a feast.
    5. Tell the kids to see if the old lady in the book eats any of their foods.
  • After you read…
    1. Decorate a small box to resemble the old lady (green hat, grey hair, big nose).
    2. Color & cut out clipart of the foods that she eats (see below).
      • NOTE: (The Mailbox, 2006-2007 Yearbook, Preschool, pg. 125 has great clipart ready to copy & color).
    3. Help the kids use the cards & illustrations from the book to retell the story in the right sequence.
    4. Ask the kids to "feed" your old lady the food cards as they are retold.
    5. End the story by holding the lady up in the air and parading around the room.
