Title: Pigs in Pajamas Author: Maggie Smith Date: 12/11/12 Publisher: Knopf Summary: Need to learn the letter “p”? At Penelope Pig’s sleepover party, six pigs in pj’s eat pizza and pasta, pound a pinata, pin the tail on the pony, prance to piano, and then form a precarious pyramid—collapsing, of course, into a squealing pig pile! Classroom Application: Alliteration, letter P
Adorable book! I found google images of each of the animals on the sled, printed them and laminated them. The students placed each animal on a Velcro strip i made with Boardmaker as they fell off the sled. Then we talked about the animals using the words before, after, left, right, and skip. Also perfect for discussing verbs, rhyming and alliteration. Fun book available in iBook!
