Happy Thanksgiving!

I know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie is a funny story about a little old lady who overeats on Thanksgiving.  Who hasn’t done that before?  Read the book and see what happens to her as a result!

This is a wonderful ESL book since it introduces many traditional Thanksgiving foods and has a lot of repetition.  If you have been playing our Thanksgiving Bingo, then you will already know the vocabulary since it includes all of the things the little old lady eats.

These are pieces for a story board.:

Print them out on thick paper, laminate them, cut them out and attach magnets (or velcro) to the back.  Using a magnetic board (or a felt board), use the pieces to retell the story.  Kids love to attach the pieces and pretend to eat them or pretend to be grossed out by them-depending on what piece it is.

For those of you who aren’t familiar, this story is a Thanksgiving take on There was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly, a classic story and song for kids.  There are many versions and variations because it such a fun song and easy to learn.
