There was an Old Lady who swallowed some leaves

scarecrow2 I love all of the Little Old Lady books.  Back in October we read
 There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Leaves!.   I saw this idea on pinterest from Teach Them To Fly and decided that it would be fun to do with my students.   I could not find a shirt and pants pattern that I liked so, I drew my own.  If you would like a copy of it, just leave me a comment and I will scan and email it to you.

 The students colored each piece and cut out the pants on their own.  I helped with the shirt if needed (this had A LOT of fine motor practice).  I used a die cut for the pumpkin head.  I used PowerPoint to remove the backgrounds from photos of my students to have just their faces.  Then I printed and cut out their faces and attached to the scarecrow bodies.  The other preschool teacher did not add the photos to the pumpkins.  I think both came out really cute (although my son says mine scares him and his friends when they walk past my classroom)!

scarecrowI also used this cute activity from Make Learning Fun to help with story retelling!
