There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bat FREEBIE

I made this one-page freebie. It's a sequencing / writing activity for The Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bat. (Some of the images are from

After reading our big book all week, the kids and I will label each one of the pictures with the correct spelling.

Then I'll have them number each image in the order in which it appears in the story.

After that, of course, they'll fill in the blanks and then colour the old lady.

We'll also print some rhyming words for bat and cat on the back of the sheet.

I have a lot of little ones who really need to practice neat printing and colouring, so I'm hoping this will be useful for that, too.
