LessonsforSale.PayPal-1We all love using the Little Old Lady Books in our classrooms! I got to spend the day in kindergarten last week teaching this lesson on recognizing narrative story patterns and stretching out the middle of a story. This will be a fun addition to your classroom. Make your teacher version with Velcro pieces and laminate to put in a station with the book!  Students can continue to practice as the month goes on!
