Our class chose to do a study on pigs. We read many "Three Little Pigs" books. My students really loved the book THE THREE LITTLE WOLVES AND THE BIG BAD PIG. We also read about real pigs in the book PIGS by Gail Gibbons. We learned the finger play "This Little Piggy Went to Market". We wrote a story about a pig, and pigs riddles. We also decided which "Three Little Pigs" book was our favorite. To end our activities we made pigs in a blanket.

Darrielle's pig riddle was: What is a pigs favorite movie?
Answer: Powderpuff Pigirls

Some other riddles that we came up with as a class are: What car does a pig drive?

What is a pig's favorite game?
Answer: Pigtendo

What does the pig go to the dumpster?
Answer: To eat pigarbage
