Ping Pong Pig by Caroline Church

The ScallywagsThis is a great book to pair with The Scallywags by David Melling.  Both books illustrate cooperation and the problems that occur when folks don’t cooperate.

The farm life is disrupted when pig “flys” by jumping everywhere and causing a big mess.

Ping Pong PigThis book is also one that could be used to teach cause and effect.

Students could predict what pig is going to do at the end when the animals see him at the top of the tree.

    I use Ping Pong Pig to teach about how conflict is caused by characters wanting different things. My first graders are able to come up with great examples of real life conflict with parents, teachers and peers.
