Whole Hearted Holidays! Reading along with I Know an Old Lady who Swallowed a Pie

I know an Old Lady who Swallowed a Pie by Alison Jackson along with an Emergent Reader by Vanessa Levin at

We love this story and when I found the Old Lady Emergent Reader, I knew my daughter would love it. One of her favorite things to do is follow along in her own book while I read or we watch a movie.

The story follows a similar plot to the familiar poem There was an Old Lady who Swallowed a Fly. When she eats the bread toward the end of this story you just know the next page will say "and now she's dead!" (since bread and dead rhyme, that is the logical next step). Find out what happens to this old woman :)

I liked the emergent reader, but knew I wanted to work on a few more things like reading the simple words and matching them in the book. So I created these reading words to make flash cards out of. The emergent reader will give you two copies, so we used one for the book and the other we cut up for a self-checking reading activity.

You could even print two copies of the word list and play a memory game with the words from the story.

If you need an academic type activity to do while your children are home from school, this one was quick to put together and she has quite a few things that she can do with it! Have fun reading along!
