P is for Pig Free Preschool and Kindergarten Printables

I hope you have enjoyed your winter break as much as we have!  Ours was full of unexpected things, such as my trip to the ER and Explorer's trips to Children's, but the rest of the time was a lot of fun celebrating all things Christmas and just enjoying each other's company.

This week we were back in the school room, and finished up our letter P unit. I made a few printables to enhance our learning, so I thought I'd share them with you :).  The P is for Pig Mini Pack can be downloaded FREE here:

The P is for Pig mini pack includes 3 different activites:

1)  Uppercase and lowercase p sorting.  Sorry!  I dont have any hands on pictures of this one.  

2)  Pig and corn cards and counters.

The pack includes cards numbered 1-10 that have pigs with feed buckets next to them.  (BTW I am in love with these pig plates I found at our local thrift!)

The object is to fill the bucket with the right amount of corn.  Here we filled them with small pieces of plain popping corn.

Or, I have included printable corn cobs like the ones that Charger is using here.

And the final thing in the pack is a word family game.

The set includes words from the -et, -en, -ip, -it, and -in families (based on the letters learned in our curriculum up to this point).

I cut out mud pits out of felt and labeled them with word families.

Mustang had to match each pig to its correct mud puddle.

I hope you can use one or more of these in your learning!  I also used items from other blogs around the blogosphere.  You might be interested in them, too:

The graphics for this pack were made by Trina Clark and purchased from Digi Scrap Kits.  Along with graphics from Just So Scrappy.
