Go beyond the original story of There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly with some great Fall and Thanksgiving language and literacy activities!
I’ve teamed up with Jenn Alcorn (Crazy Speech World) and Kristin Cummings (Simply Speech) to showcase these fall themed versions of the There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed….some leaves and a turkey.
Everything I mention in this post can be used independently, but what a dynamic therapy session you can have when retelling the story is paired with my Old Lady felt doll!
First, let me show you some specific book companions you can grab from Jenn and Kristin.
