S is for Syllables and Scarecrows...
S is for syllables and scarecrows...In October I read There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Leaves by Lucille Colandro to lead up to this Scarecrow Glif activity. Students love sneezing "AAACHOO" with the reading of
the story. They giggle every time they sneeze and love looking at the animal characters expressions as the old lady eats crazy things.
We predict what will happen at the end of the story. Then when I reveal that the old lady made a scarecrow, we have a discussion about what a scarecrow is and why they are used.
We also read The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid Of Anything by Linda Williams. Students make connections between these two stories. "They both have an old lady and
a scarecrow." etc.
