Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie Printable

Well, wouldn’t you know it? As soon as I published my Thanksgiving Literacy and Math packets last week I discovered some super cute images at Scrappin Doodles that would have been perfect to include. Since it was too late I decided to create this free printable for you!

Supplies Needed:
Do-a-Dot Markers
Soft Pocket Cube

This game goes along with one of my favorite Thanksgiving books, I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Pie by Alison Jackson.

How to Play

These types of games are fun and simple to play. There are two pages included, the first one is the recording sheet and the second page has pictures that you cut out and insert into a pocket die or attach to the outside of a square box.

Give one recording sheet to each child in your small group. Print out the pictures, cut, and place in a pocket die.

Next, the students take turns rolling the die and recording their rolls on their recording sheet with a Do-A-Dot marker.

If your students are able you can have them write the numbers in the box instead of using the Do-A-Dot marker. Ask your students questions about how many of each item they rolled and which one has more or less to reinforce math concepts.

    Looks great! But it always print small – Do you know what I’m doing wrong?

    • Hi Beckie, Thanks for visiting. Make sure your printer is set to print in landscape orientation for this document instead of portrait. Go to “preferences” then select “landscape”. If you are in chrome open the document, then right click on the image to open the printer dialog box. Hope that helps :)

    I can hardly wait for tomorrow :-)

    We love “I Know an Old Lady” books! We don’t own the pie one but we have the fly one in a large size, with stacking cut-outs! It never EVER gets old! ;0

    Anyway, I’m stopping in because I am new to We Teach and just joined the “We’re Bloggers” group. When you find a moment, I would love for you to do the same. You can find me at

    BTW, I didn’t see a GFC widget so I am subscribing via Google Reader. I hope that will suffice?

    • Thanks for stopping by Sofia! I checked out your blog, great stuff! I am a little OCD about my sidebar- I can’t stand clutter so I don’t have a GFC widget. Feel free to connect any way you wish :)
