Flannel Friday-I Know a Wee Piggy

I Know a Wee Piggy by Kim Norman came through our new book shelves this week and I knew it would make a great flannelboard.  The rhyme reminds me of I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly, but the cumulative colors are similar to Dog's Colorful Day by Emma Dodd.

We start off with our wee piggy made out of pink felt.  The pattern was a Microsoft clip art pig increased to 11x17 and printed out.  The details are puffy paint.

The story starts with:
I know a wee piggy who wallowed in brown.
Upside down, he wallowed in brown.
"But brown is not for me," he said.
"I think I'll add a rinse of..."

Our wee piggy ends up with spots of brown, red, white, pink, yellow, black, green, gray, purple, and blue.

I Know a Wee Piggy would be a great addition to a story time on pigs, animals, colors, or fairs.

This week's Flannel Friday round-up is hosted by Andrea at Roving Fiddlehead Kidlit.
