Youngsters listen to the story, "There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly." After discussing the story, going over new vocabulary, and repeating the rhymes in the story, they study the parts of a fly. They finish by creating a fly on the computer and printing it out for their science folder. A good lesson!
Preschoolers will love learning the song, " I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly" with this PowerPoint. Each slide contains an image of an old lady and the animal she swallowed.

It appears that this presentation was created as test preparation.
Young learners sing the song "I Know an Old Who Swallowed a Fly." They learn to track the words on a pocket chart and identify rhymes in the song as they are learning. Using illustrations, a flip chart, and the song, the teacher will help learners identify the written words as they grow familiar with the words to the song. Rhyming words are a focus as well.
