Batty Reading Fun!

You have probably read, There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly to your kiddos. If you enjoyed that book, you will love this one and so will your kids.

I created ideas to go along with There Was a Cold Lady Who Swallowed some Snow and thought I would do the same for There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bat. Below you will find some of my ideas of how to use this in your classroom (Prek-2). You will also find many free printables I created to match this fun story.

To order this book from Amazon, click here!

Go to http://www.teachingheart.net/oldladybat.html for ideas to match this book.

After you read the story: I created an activity sheet that asks one to write in the words of the items the lady swallowed. One is also asked to draw a picture of the items the lady swallowed.

At No Time For Flashcards, I saw these bat hand prints that I thought I would try with the kids after reading the book. Check out her batty video.
Here are some bat finger puppets: http://lds.about.com/od/crafts/a/bat_craft.htm
