There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Chick

April 8, 2020 – At Home Learning

Share and Care is now “virtual” during our time apart. Each day of our learning is going to focus around a story and will have ideas for the following areas: literacy, math, art, helping at home, music and movement. We will also have an idea for a snack! At the end of each post we will include a daily Bible story and a link so you can get your Praise music jam on. If you tune in to our Facebook Live at 10am, you will also get a bonus idea for extra fun you can have in your very own living room!

Your teachers have been working on providing ideas for today’s story, There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Chick by Lucille Colandro and illustrated by Jared Lee. This story is accompanied by a non-fiction story, Chickens by Hannah Ray.

  • Write each letter of your name on a different piece of paper and place each letter in a plastic egg. Ask a tall friend to hide the eggs for you. Now’s the extra fun part, GO FIND THOSE EGGS! See if you can spell out your name after you’ve found all the eggs. How many eggs did you need to spell your name? Could you try it for another family member? How many eggs does their name need? Which family member needs the MOST eggs? Which family member needs the least?

  • Today I’m going to encourage you to grab some items from around your house and play with those plastic eggs. You could add cardboard tubes, empty cereal boxes, pom poms, plastic spoons! You could create an obstacle course or an egg roller coaster! The sky’s the limit!
  • The Hoffman Kiddos started an egg observation. On Monday they submerged a whole egg in a cup of vinegar. Each day they are going to check to see what is happening. On Day 1, all the coloring from their brown egg floated to the top. On Day 2 they swapped out the vinegar for fresh vinegar. We plan on observing the egg for a total of 4 days.
