We talked about what pigs like to do in the mud. We read "Stuck in the Mud", by Jane Clarke. We discussed when we get hot, we sweat, but pigs don't sweat and must roll bin the mud to cool off.
They traced their name with mud (brown paint). I wrote the number 3, they were encouraged to trace the 3 with paint and create three mud piles.
We played a game, Muddy Phonics, each child took turns placing pig game pieces on the mud puddles with the same beginning sound and matching upper case and lower case letters.
We celebrated one of our friends birthday this week! Happy 3rd birthday!
