Today we have another Literacy Snack St. Patrick’s Day Read-Aloud to share with you! This week, we are reading, There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Clover by Lucille Colandro.
The old lady is back in this book, this time swallowing a clover. Then she continues to swallow items to make the perfect rainbow to hide a pot of gold. It’s a fun rhyming read-aloud for St. Patrick’s Day.
To go along with the story, we are making our own rainbow snacks today!
THIS ACTIVITY WORKS WELL WITH
Supplies needed – each student needs
12-15 mini marshmallows
Fruit Loops cereal – 6 pieces of each color cereal
First, have your students create their cloud using their marshmallows. Next, have them use one color cereal at a time to create each arch of their rainbow and they’re done! Easy fun beautiful rainbow snack!
While your students are enjoying their rainbow snack, I made a free printable for them to work on. They get to recall all of the things in the story that the Old Lady swallowed and color them in. See if they can color the items in the order that they happened in the book to make it into a sequencing activity.
