There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Rose: Phonological Awareness Book Companion

Well, my kindergarten intervention groups have been up and running for about a month and a half now.  They are loving using all of my phonological awareness book companion activities.  It is amazing how engaged the students get when you use a book, and then directly relate activities to the book.  With Valentine’s Day coming up, I wanted to create a fun new companion with a Valentine’s theme.  The book There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Rose by Lucille Colandro seemed like the perfect one!  My students have loved the other books from this series, and I am sure they will love this one too.

There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Rose: Phonological Awareness Companion Pack

There are six different activities included in this packet:

How Many Syllables
Students count the number of syllables, and use a Do-A-Dot marker to complete the activity.     
(4 worksheets)


Blending Syllables
Students listen to two syllables and state the word that they hear. (18 cards and game board)


Recognizing Rhyme
Students listen to two words and then state if the two words rhyme. (24 cards and 2 mats)




Generating Rhyme
Students are given a word and asked to state a rhyming word.  (27 cards and roll it, rhyme it, keep it game board)



Listening for Sounds
Students listen to a word and state either the beginning, middle, or ending sound in each word. (54 cards and game board from Blending Syllables activity)


Phonological Awareness Worksheets

Also included in this packet are four pages of phonological awareness activities to compliment the book There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Rose.  These are worksheet style pages that can be read out loud with students.  There are no materials to prep.  Just print and use.


I love how this packet turned out, and can’t wait to use it with my Kindergarten students the week of Valentine’s Day!
