My son really enjoys the book, The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything, and we have read it many, many times this fall. There are so many things I love about this book: the personification of the clothing, the gross body movements we have fun making while reading, sequencing parts of the story, and finally all the fun scarecrow extension ideas that can be done with this book opening up a world of language activities.
I made the above activity for a visual sequencing activity for my son. We talked about what happened “first, second, third fourth, fifth, sixth, next, last”, and I added the number of each step as we discussed the book (a simple way to add number recognition to this activity). Once the sequencing was complete, we went back through the book, and using these pictures, I asked my son to retell the story. It was so much fun and I realized what a perfect language development activity this was. So, I share it with you today!
