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

This is a good book to show for sequence of events and chronological order. I would use this in my classroom by having them all pick an animal from the book and getting in a group. We will then play the song and as their animal was said they would have to stand up and act like that animal. I could also use this as a time to relate to other concepts such as long vowel sounds. I would get a tissue box and dress it up as an old lady and they could say that the old lady swallowed long vowel sounds and have to place words in the box. I think this book could be read at any grade level. The Lexile Level is AD250L.

This is a fun children's book that can be a little disturbing, simply due to the fact that the lady dies at the end. The book is about an old lady who initially swallows a fly, then swallows a series of animals to get rid of the animal she had eaten prior until she eats a horse and dies because a horse it to big. This book could help with sequencing a story while providing the opportunity for the children to be interactive by making this into a song or other activity.

This is a book about a crazy old lady that continuously swallows different animals. This book is very creative. I would use this book in my class room to get the students to put the animals in the correct order. I would use this in first grade.

There was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Shell
There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Shell! Book and Audiocassette Tape Set (Paperback Book and Audio Cassette Tape) - Lucille Colandro,Jared Lee,Skip Hinnant

There was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Shell, is a spin off from There was an Old Lady who Swallowed a Fly. Personally, I like this version because it involves the beach. The author, Lucille Colandro, does a great job to sequence the next culprit the lady swallows. Any of these versions, could be used to help students with sequencing. Have the students fill out a sequencing activity sheet or divide the class into groups and assign each member a different object then have the students put their selves in order. This book is leveled at a AD390L on the Lexile Leveling system.

This is a story and a song about the old lady who swallowed a fly, a spider, a bird, and even more. This is just a funny, creative, story to grab students attention and this book can also help with students memorization and sequencing. I would read this in kindergarten through first grade.
