Tag Archives: main character

We read the story An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly and retold the story by shoving animals into an old lady puppet’s mouth.  Then we discussed characters of the story and talked about what a main character is.  We drew illustrations or wrote the main character as well as three other characters in inside the story to make a character map.

We read the book The Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly and used pictures of the different animals she swallowed to re-tell the story.  Then students worked as a class to put the order of events back in the correct sequence.  Finally, my K-1 All-Stars illustrated and wrote the main character of the story as well as other characters to make a character map.
