I Know an Old Lady...Retelling

One of the best ways to know if a reader is comprehending is having them retell the story they heard.  Today we spent time recreating the Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie.  This was a VERY FUN activity!  Your reader should be able to use the pieces they made to retell the story to you at home.

There are nine pieces in the story:
a pie
some cider
a roll
a squash
a salad
a turkey
a pot
a cake
some bread.

Be sure to ask your reader what happened to the Old Lady after she swallowed all that stuff!

Here are some fun photos of their work:

Here we are practicing our retelling this afternoon in class.  
 And check out all these hungry Old Ladies!

Happy Reading!
