There Was An Old Lady.  There was so many how to's out there to make an old lady.  From small trash cans to empty boxes.  However you make your old lady, you simply need to print and laminate the items that go with her story.  From Swallowing a Fly to Swallowing a Pie and everything in between, this can be used frequently throughout the academic year.

Puppet Shows.  Some stories can be retold by use of puppets within the reading area.  

Drawing.  I had a student once retell in detail every bit of the story of Cinderella (Disney version) for a drawing she made.
