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

Laura Numeroff’s tale If You Give a Pig a Pancake is a classic story of a little girl who tries to accommodate the whims of one demanding little pig. The pig begins with some pancakes, and from there she finds herself in need of syrup. After using the syrup, she gets a little sticky and needs to take a bath. For her bath, she needs some bubbles and bath toys. Many more events take place from here with the pig needing one thing after another. This book’s Lexile reading level is 570L, and it does an excellent job at helping students practice sequencing and predicting. In my classroom, I would use this book to practice reading fluency with my students. There is a printable script that you can download online, so I would allow students to form groups of two to read this script. Each member in the group would draw a fluency stick that has a different voice to use when reading. Students will then practice reading the story in those voices to develop their fluency.
