Grab the Book There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Rose
Reading Comprehension Game
Next, your students will love this reading comprehension game board and cards. My students RUN to this activity and beg to play more. Little do they know they are working on tons of actual Kindergarten reading standards but in a fun way. This is also a sneaky and practical way to assess reading comprehension skills. You get the game board, reading comprehension cards, and answer key.
Math Old Lady Rose Integration Activity
One big way to make a learning impact on students is pure integration. You will want to play this ten-frame game my little loves are OBSESSED with, called Fill the Ten Frame. Here is how my little loves play. First, a student rolls the die. You can use a foam die like I have or a printable die taped together. Then, students color in one box for the item that is on the top of the die, until one ten-frame is filled. This game builds great one-to-one correspondence and number sense. Plus, it is amazing fun for your students.
Old Lady Rose Writing Too
Speaking of integration, this means writing too! I also created a Write Me Three prompt and word wall to encourage independent writing. This is a basic tool I use to get my younger students ready to write about a few things using simple sentences.
When we are ready to write more, we turn to a word wall to help us. Check out these writers using their word wall to write to retell the story. My favorite part is “she blue” instead of “she blew.”
Word walls can be such a great tool because students can focus on what they are writing and not on every little word from the book, Old Lady Who Swallowed a Rose.
