There Was an Old Lady FREEBIE!

WHEW! After working away the last 4 days on my newest idea, it's finally done! *insert cheers* My 1st graders love the There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a ____ (insert favorite book title here) books, so I finally bit the bullet and purchased ALL of the adorable Old Lady graphics from Scrappin Doodles.

I've had so much fun with them, creating 13 (!) new mini-books based on every possible variation of the book I could find. Some of these I didn't realize even existed, like There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Rose! for Valentine's Day. I found out about that just in the nick of time!


Inspired by all of the great things I can create with my newest clip art collection, (and believe me, I have way too much clip art for one person! It's a bit of an obsession now.), I've decided to create an Old Lady FREEBIE to share with you all! I made a set of three Old Lady sequencing worksheets, which can be used with any of the Old Lady books. The worksheets use both ordinal numbers and transitional phrases, all things I'm practicing with my kiddos. Just click on any of the pictures below to get them from Google Docs!
And to check out my Old Lady mini-book MEGA pack, just click on the picture below to go straight to my TpT store! :)

    1. Oh man, the world of cute clip art is limitless! It's like my newest hobby, collecting it all. My tip is to go to MyGrafico and check out the promotions. They run great sales every week! KPM Doodles also usually has a discount code on her blog. I rarely buy clip art full price, I can't afford it! ha

    1. I'm trying to teach my firsties to expand their writing to include more transitions, and that's how I got the idea for these worksheets. I don't know why I didn't think of this before now!!
