|First we read the story There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly....after which we made our own!|
|I also typed up the words to go along with all the animals in The Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly....|
|These have been very engaging for the students. They really loved doing this activity to go along with our Healthy Lifestyles unit.|
|Everybody's Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly looked a little different.|
|We have read all of these innovations on the original "There Was an Old Lady" books. Some of them were really funny.|
This Activity was really cute for a CENTER GAME. Use a MRS. BUTTERWORTH'S empty syrup bottle to "feed" the old lady words using beads and pipe cleaners. I saw a cute picture of it on Pinterest. It's from Housingaforest.com.
|Some of my collection of "There Was an _______ Lady who Swallowed _______" books.|
Check out another book title THERE WAS AN OLD LADY WHO SWALLOWED SOME CLOVER and activities to go with it HERE. She makes the old lady to "feed" by placing this picture in front of an empty tissue box.
We could have been saving tissue boxes all year. This would be cute to do in March to go along with St. Patrick's Day! Another one I found is HERE at kidzclub. It is free and printable. Click here then go to black and white. Don't click on the picture.
Another activity I had for a fast finisher is this wordsearch HERE from Buildingstrongchildren. The book text you can use to sing along is HERE at bogglesworldesl.com. Just click on the old lady page links. Cute pictures too! A MATH roll and cover "Old Lady" is HERE at TPT.
Then we watch this Youtube on Healthy foods and we listen to a 5 a Day song tape from DOLE while we worked on coloring and cutting out our Little Old Ladies. HERE are a bunch of printables for kids on Healthy Eating topics.
|We read this reader's theater on Mr. Energy and how he keeps his body in good shape by eating right. We didn't have time to do the puppets.|
|We colored this "food Groups" worksheet and stapled it and the foolish old lady on the back of their Little Old Lady health projects so they could read them to brothers and sisters at home and replay and act out the story.|
|This was a very funny poem about a lady who overeats on junk food that the kids LOVED! And we also read the riddles and they figured out what food groups were the answers.|
|The Food Pyramid Flannel Board activity center......|
|Good nutrition Worksheet we did this week.|
|These were really cute made up on the kids' desks....I think I got this from 5 a Day at Dole. Check out Dole's Website HERE. I've gotten lots of free activities from them because I asked.|
