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