    For a class I'm taking for my Master's Degree, I need a book that's appropriate to read to first graders and has a lot of prop-type things to go along with it. Any ideas? :thanks:

    There Was An Old Lady Who Swalled a Fly, or any of that type of book.
    I've got an outline of the old lady and everything she swallow. I have the kids color and cut her out and glue on a paper bag and color and cut all the other animals she eats. Then I reread the story and they act it out by placing the animals in the bag (her stomach). After hearing the story a few times they can retell it themselves with the props.

    Also- I think if you google it you can find some website that has the printables.

    I just read Bark George with my nephews and it's a pretty similar concept to there was an old lady... George won't bark, and then the vet has to pull out all of the animals in his stomach. My nephews were practically rolling on the floor laughing!

    The Mitten or The Umbrella by Jan Brett - I do the same kind of activity with them making cut-outs of the animals to put in the mitten.
