I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie

I have many, many versions of I know an Old Lady… it’s become almost an obsession to find new versions!  I could (and probably will) do a whole blog just on those.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can find all the items she “swallows” here:

I put Velcro in the lady’s mouth and on a line below, switching out the objects for each special occasion! For spring she has a lovely hat to cover her bun!

These activities really meet a lot of the goals I have for clients: to expand vocabulary, sequencing and following directions.
