If you give a pig a pancake......you will have lots of fun! :)
Ok, that's not exactly how the story goes but we sure enjoyed ourselves.
Here's What We Did:
Pigs & Pancakes Addition:
I found free pancakes and pigs clip art and used it to make a simple addition sheet.
The Lil Divas had to add the pancakes or pigs and write the total.
This was great practice at number writing and simple addition/counting.
M vs P - Initial Sound Sorting:
Once again I found free clip art of words beginning with m and p and made a simple sorting mat. The Lil Divas had to sort the pictures and glue them onto the appropriate side according to their initial sound.
Easy Shape Pig Craft:
The Littlest Diva really wanted to make a pig while her big sis was doing her homework. I hadn't planned on it & didn't have time to put anything elaborate together so I came up with this simple shapes craft instead - easy, cute & well received by the Littlest Diva.
What You Need:
pink, black & white construction paper
1. Cut the following out of the pink construction paper:
1 large circle (face)
an oval (nose)
2 triangles (ears)
2. Cut the following out of the black construction paper:
2 small circles (inner eyes)
2 smaller circles (nostrils)
2 small triangles (inner ears)
3. 2 small circles (eyes) out of white construction paper
Let your child put the pig together (see photo of finished pig above)
Feed the Pig - A Sight Words Review Game
This was so easy to make/prepare and such a hit w/the Lil Divas!
What You Need:
brown construction paper
1. cut circular shaped pancakes out of the brown construction paper.
2. write out target sight words on each pancake.
How to Play:
1. Position the pig in front of the plate - she is ready & waiting for her pancakes!
2. Lay out all the pancakes/sight words and give child the spatula
3. randomly call out sight words and let child find them & feed them to the pig by putting them on the plate.
4. when I only had a few left I let her read the words to me and add them to the plate.
The Oldest Diva really enjoyed this game and it was a great way to review all the sight words we've been working on.
