Let’s take a look at some activities included in The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything Book Companion that are great to pair with this read aloud.
The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything by Linda Williams is a wonderful interactive book for groups of kids of all types. My own kids love this book, guessing what’s next, and repeating the lines. You can grab the book on Amazon here. (affiliate link) .
What is a Book Companion?
Book companions are a set of effective extension activities that go along with a published book. Book companions are a SUPPLEMENT to the book and do not contain any text from the book. You must have access to the book to use the book companion (you can get access by purchasing the book on amazon, finding the book at your library, or listening to a read aloud on youtube.)
HOW DO YOU USE BOOK COMPANIONS?
First, the teacher would read the book aloud in a whole group setting. Then the students would break apart into independent work and small group to use the companion materials at their own level.

WHY ARE SIMPLY SPECIAL ED’S BOOK COMPANIONS DIFFERENT?
My book companions are specifically created with special education and self-contained classrooms in mind. What does that mean? My book companions include leveled materials that will meet the needs of every student in your classroom. This makes the planning easier on the teacher. I also select the books with special education classrooms in mind.
