"There was an old lady that swallowed a chick, I don't know why she swallowed a chick, but she didn't get sick."
We recently borrowed There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Chick by Lucille Colandro from our library. This is the Easter version of Colandro's "Old Lady" series. It is a silly book with repetitive rhyming text and funny illustration. It was a fun read.
After reading this we made our own silly chick. We made a footprint chick. I painted Alex's foot yellow and he stepped on to a piece of construction paper.
When the footprint had dried Alex glued on some googly eyes, two yellow feathers for wings and a orange beak that I had cut out for him out paper.
Our silly chick was finished!
