Silly Old Lady Trio (There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bat; There Was A Cold Lady Who Swallowed Some Snow!; I Know An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie) - Alison Jackson, Lucille Colandro, Jared Lee

There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bat is one of the many silly old lady stories. It talks about an old woman who swallows one thing, then another, and another until something happens and they all get out. This is a perfect story for all children, but I would use it mainly for young children from kindergarten to second grade. There are fun videos that the children could follow along with. One lesson idea is that each child gets a character, and when their character comes up, they jump, or spin, or whatever the teacher wanted them to do. At the end of the activity, they could put the creatures in the order they were eaten. In kindergarten, the sequencing would be done as a class, but for first and second grade they could work in small groups or independently.
