Pig Storytime!

on May 1, 2013

This week we talked about pigs!

Songs:

Nothing Wrong Song By: Jim Gill

Bubblegum By: Dr. Jean

Jumping and Counting By: Jim Gill

Flannel Board:

5 little piggies running out the door, one tripped and fell and that left 4.

4 little piggies dancing with glee, one fell down and then there were 3.

3 little piggies shopping for new shoes, one had no money and that left 2.

2 little piggies lying in the sun, one went for a swim and that left 1.

1 little piggie was sad to be alone, he got scared so he ran home!

I also did a great folder story with the kids called Farmer’s Friends.  On the front is a picture of a barn:

Farm Folder Story
And you lift the barn door and reveal what animal is inside!

We had such a good time talking about each animal and what sound it makes.
Books:
Pigs to the Rescue! By: John Himmelman (This was awesome because on every page we threw our fists in the air and shouted “Pigs to the Rescue!” and the kids LOVED it)
The Long-nosed Pig By: Keith Faulkner (Pop up story)
If you Give a Pig a Pancake By: Laura Numeroff
Check out my Pig tag on my Shelfari page for more good books that I didn’t have time to read!

Craft:

A very cute piggy face!  I had the kids glue them on a popscicle stick to make it a mask, they loved it.

    Could you e-mail me the story The Farmer’s Friends? aellison81@yahoo.com
    It looks really cute and my preschoolers would probably love it. Thanks

      Hi Amanda! There isn’t a story that goes along with it. We just tried to guess what animal would be next “in the barn” and I would flip it up and they kids would all yell “cow! etc.” Then we’d talk about the sound it makes. They loved it though!
