There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly
There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly - Simms Taback

This book's title alone is guaranteed to grad the attention of any potential reader, because what would happen if an old lady swallowed a fly? And furthermore, who has ever heard of an old lady who swallowed a dog, or a horse? This book is humorous and full of unusual plot twists making readers sit on the edge of their seats waiting to read about the next crazy thing this old lady will swallow. This book's intended audience is 2nd grade. An activity I could do with this book is have the audio song version of the book play, along with the YouTube music video playing and have each student have a card that represents an animal the old lady swallowed. Every time the students heard the name of what was on their card, they have to stand up. This is such a fun activity for students because it gets them up and moving and also engaged in the reading. There are many versions of this book and many audio songs that could be used!
