Muddy Pigs: Action Song

Pig.Heart.Mud5 Little Pigs
Text and Actions by CK Emanuel
To the tune of: 5 Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed

Five little pigs rolling in mud
HOLD UP APPROPRIATE NUMBER OF FINGERS
ROLL ON THE GROUND
One climbs out and stinks– P.U.!
JUMP UP
GRAB NOSE WITH ONE HAND WITH WAVING AT NOSE WITH OTHER
Mama called the farmer and the farmer said,
EXTEND PINKY AND THUMB FROM FIST MAKING A “Y” SHAPE AND HOLD TO EAR LIKE A PHONE
No more pigs rolling in mud.”
SHAKE FINGER

REPEAT AND PROCEED TO COUNTDOWN FROM 5 to 1

OPTIONAL FOR ZERO PIGS
No little pigs rolling in mud,
MAKE A ZERO BY TOUCHING FINGERTIPS TO THUMB
all are clean, but getting hot!
WAVE HAND IN FRONT OF FACE
Mama called the farmer and the farmer said,
AS BEFORE
“Have all the pigs roll in mud!”
ROLL ON THE GROUND

Fairy Tale Three Little Pigs: Fingerplay

Three Little Pigs
Text and Actions by C.K. Emanuel

There are three little houses:
TOUCH FINGERTIPS TOGETHER TO MAKE A HOUSE
Straw, twigs, brick,
COUNT 1, 2, 3 WITH FINGERS
With three little pigs happy and snug.
PALMS TOGETHER WITH BACK OF HAND TOUCHING SIDE OF FACE.

Along creeps a wolf,
CUP HANDS, HAVE THEM “WALK” IN FRONT OF YOU
Who took a great big breath
TOUCH STOMACH AND BREATHE
Whoosh!
CUP HANDS BY MOUTH
Away blew the straw house,
SWEEP HAND AWAY FROM BODY
And one little pig did run!
PUMP ARMS AT SIDES AS IF RUNNING

Now there are two little houses:
SAME ACTIONS AS BEFORE
Twigs and brick
COUNT 1, 2 WITH FINGERS
With three little pigs happy and snug.

Along creeps a wolf
SAME ACTIONS AS BEFORE
Who took a great big breath
Whoosh!
Away blew the twig house,
And two little pigs did run!

Now there is one little house,
Built of bricks
HOLD UP ONE FINGER
With three little pigs happy and snug.

Along creeps a wolf
Who took a great big breath
Swoosh!
The house stood strong
FLEX ARMS AT EITHER SIDE OF HEAD
And away went the wolf.
CUP HANDS, HAVE THEM “WALK” IN FRONT OF YOU
