If you search for those books, there are some activities that you might be able to adapt for that book. I just did There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Leaves and we made a head, arms, legs and drew the things she swallowed and put them in a plastic bag for the body of the lady. It turned out really cute.

I always let my students act it out as I read it.
Their two hands go "clap clap."
Their 2 shoes go "clomp clomp."
You get the idea. They love the repetition and interactive read!

I use my pocket chart. I've have sentence strips that tell the story that go into the pockets that can be sequenced in correct order. Also I have the body parts on paper (pumpkin head, shirt, pants, shoes, gloves, hat) that I have the students put into the pocketchart that makes a huge pumpkin man when put in correctly. I then bring clothing from home to make the scarecrow character from the book. I put children into groups. One groups stuffs a brown paper sack to shape into a head and draw the face. Another group stuffs the shirt. Another the pants. We tell the story as we put our pumpkin scarecrow together. The children love it.

I was not able to find that script. Is there another place it might be?

I did the same thing, having the kids sequence the story, but I brought in the actual items of clothing. I had some old gardening gloves, DH's work boots, DS's jeans (he was in kdg at the time!), DS's old plaid shirt, etc. They took turns using the items as the class made the sounds in the story.
