If You Give a Pig a Pancake - Preschool/Kindergarten Fun

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
glue
markers

Prep:
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
marker
scissors
plate
spatula
toy pig

Prep:
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.

  9. Again I like this idea. Maybe for the M vs P - Initial Sound Sorting instead of gluing so I could use all the pieces again I would use Velcro on the pages and pictures.
