Jodi's Classroom Favorites

A collection of my favorite picture, short story, and chapter books that I hope to house in my classroom library!

If You Give A Pig A Pancake

If You Give a Pig a Pancake - Laura Joffe Numeroff, Felicia Bond

If You Give A Pig A Pancake is one of my FAVORITE stories. I can recite this story without looking at the words! The text is easy to read, silly, and accompanied by beautiful illustrations. There are so many activities that can accompany this title! I used this book to demonstrate a cooking lesson with preschoolers! I allowed them to make their own pancake batter. They made predictions about what would happen when they added specific ingredients. They especially loved enjoying a yummy snack! A sequencing map would be easy to include while covering this text. I think it would be fun for students to write about their favorite pancake toppings or construct a recipe and describe how to cook pancakes.
