"What does she eat?," you may be wondering. Here's the vocabulary:
- a pie (a Thanksgiving pie, which was really too dry)
- a pot
|Old Lady eating some pie|
As with most of the "Old Lady" stories, I'll be having the students "feed" the old lady. I have picture cards for the food objects that I got from Mailbox Magazine a few years ago. I usually try to draw the old lady, but I just couldn't get this one right. So, I'm using the face from Katie's "Old Lady Who Swallowed a Clover" activity posted on Playing With Words 365 (Yup, she's attached to a tissue box!). We also work on sequencing the items she ate in order, using sentences ("She ate the ___" or "She is eating the ___"), and answering WH- questions (e.g., "Why did she drink some cider?").

There are about a million printables out there for this story! I'll be sharing just a few of my favorites. I found this super cute 8-page printable book from Can Do Kinders. I thought this would be a good follow-up for the story. Here are some of the pages:

Brea at Let's Talk Speech-Language Pathology created another cute printable book that is great for preschool. Her story is sung to the tune of "The Farmer in the Dell" and it includes the same vocabulary from this story. Here's a peek:
