I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie Mini Math and Literacy Unit

It all started with a quick glimpse of the Old Granny Who Swallowed Thanksgiving Dinner graphic set on the Scrappin Doodles Facebook page yesterday and I knew I had to get busy creating a few things for my Kindergarten kiddos. I LOVE all of the Little Old Lady Who Swallowed a … books. It seems like my students love them just as much.


Click on the picture below to take you to my TpT store to purchase your copy! 



This 50 page unit contains:
Shared Reading (Color and Black/White)
Magnetic Board/Mobile Retelling Pieces
Pocket Chart Sequencing and Vocabulary Cards
Syllable Sort and Self-Check
Spinner and Graph
Pattern Pieces
Emergent Reader (Color and Black/White)


To those of you finding this post via Pinterest, I'm sorry, but this unit is no longer free. So many people were having trouble downloading it through Google Docs that I have completely updated it and added an additional 20 pages and added it to my TpT store. I hope you understand. Feel free to check out the wonderful lesson plans that Deb at Writing Every Day Works created to go with the book and printables.  What an amazing resource!

You can find more activities or lesson at the following links:

    I have a Mac and use a program called Combine PDFs to merge several pdf documents together. I don't know if you are a PC or a Mac, but that's what I use. Thank you for the beautiful pages!

    Thanks!

    I had a little bit of trouble printing the readers, though! I printed them and I only got one book page per printed page when I think there is supposed to be two!! Am I wrong? Is anyone else having this issue?? It's still awesome!

  30. Thanks so much for these great FREE downloads. You are awesome!! I did have a problem with printing the pie page of the emergent book. It looks great on the screen, but when I print it, it comes out with a little pie overlapping the big pie. This happens both in color and the black and white version. Oops!

    Sandra, I'm having the same trouble. It shows up fine on MS Word until I convert it to a PDF file and then it makes it one per page instead of two. I wish I have had several people try to help me with it and they can't figure it out, either. :(

  46. I love every single activity you posted! Thank you so much for sharing, I wish I had some of your talent so I could create something like those! It doesn't bother me to click on each image to save---especially if it means it will be free. (:

  47. Thank you so much for these resources! I loved them all! I used many of these activities in my literacy centers and small groups! Please tell me you are going to do similar activities for I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bell?!

  48. Thank you for taking the time to create and post these wonderful resources to share free of charge! I teach a self-contained class for children with multiple disabilities so any inspiring and time-saving resources that I find online make life so much easier when planning each week for age levels from 5 to 10!
    Thank you!

  50. @JuanitaWhat a sweet comment! Thank you so much! It sounds like you probably work really hard. I think that a range in age levels like that has to be really difficult. Especially if they function at ranges even greater than their age span. :)
