She's baaaaaack!! That crazy old lady is back and swallowing up the Christmas spirit! This week I used
with my therapy groups.
I decided to do a story retelling activity with my groups using a paper bag and pictures of objects in the story (vocabulary!)
I read the story first. I took this time to do some story predicting and discussion during the story. 
After I was done, I gave the students the materials to create their own story in a bag! 
I had them number the back of the pictures as a reminder of the order (sequencing!)
Here are some of our finished products, what do you think?


  1. Great ideas! I plan on doing this book next week in therapy!

  2. Such a cute idea! I love using books in therapy!

  3. Years ago I found the old lady doll in a Lillian Vernon catalog and I have collected the parts for each of the books so the kids can "feed" her as we read the story. This would be an excellent take home extension activity.

  4. Very cute! I love the "There Was an Old Lady" books. I made an old lady from a tissue box and we practice feeding her each item as we go's useful, because I can switch out the vocabulary with each book. This would be another great extension for my students.
