Our story last week was Pig in a Wig. We talked about realism vs. fantasy. The kids made these pigs. Turned out pretty cute! Got this idea from life in first grade blog. Except they did The Big Blue Ox. The only bad thing was it took way too long for me to cut out all those circles and body parts. I think next time, I'll draw the pattern and let them color it and cut it out themselves.
We made a list of what real pigs could not do.
