Fingerplay: “Five Little Piggies”
“It’s time for my piggies to go to bed,” the great big mother piggy said.
“So I will count them first to see if all my piggies came back to me.
One little piggy, two little piggies, three little piggies dear
Four little piggies, five little piggies, — yes, they’re all here!”

Flannelboard: Five Clean and Squeaky Pigs
Five pigs so squeaky clean
Cleanest that you’ve ever seen
Wanted to outside and play (IN THE MUD)
One jumped into the mud
Landed with a great big thud
Then there were four clean squeaky pigs (Oink, oink!)

 Fingerplay: “Two Mother Pigs”
Two mother pigs lived in a pen (show thumbs)
Each had four babies, and that made ten (show fingers & thumbs)
These four babies were black as night (thumb in palm, wiggle fingers)
These four babies were black and white (switch hands, repeat)
But all eight babies loved to play
And they rolled and rolled in the mud all day (roll hands)
At night, with their mother, they curled up in a heap (clasp hands)
And squealed and squealed till they fell fast asleep.

       Tune:  “Ten Little Indians”                       
  One little, two little, three little pigs,
     Four little, five little, six little pigs,
    Seven little, eight little, nine little pigs.
                        In the barnyard.

 Read the rhyme 
“This Little Piggy Went To Market”
                        This little piggy went to market.
                        This little piggy stayed home.
                        This little piggy had roast beef,
                        This little piggy had none.
                        This little piggy ran all the way home.
