My oldest daughter wants to be a veterinarian when she grows up. She has always loved animals and bugs. She is my child that would dig in the dirt for hours looking for worms she could bring home to play with in her dollhouse. One time I even found a “family” of ladybugs inhabiting her dollhouse…in her room!

Sadly, I had to inform her that dollhouses were for her inside toys and that her “pets” could not stay in her room. Of course, at that point I think they had already met their maker, but she insisted on letting them go back out in to the ‘wild’. Thankfully since then she has not brought any more creatures into the house. She simply makes them a home outside.

If your kids love the "Olivia the Pig" book series, they will have fun with this book activities pack! It is a fun printable companion to the first book in the series and includes 11 pages of activities! Inside you'll find reading comprehension questions, parts of speech review, spelling/handwriting, art/drawing, writing prompts, a page to research about pigs, a compare and contrast exercise and much more! #reading #homeschoolers #iaydhomeschoolers #iaydhsmoms

Even though she loves worms and little creatures, she also has a fondness for larger animals. Last year she rode a horse for the first time and begged for us to have one of her own for months. She loves dogs and cats too. She has a lot of favorite animals, but they are categorical, such as land animals, ocean animals, pets, etc. Her favorite ocean animals are sea turtles. Her favorite pet is a husky, which she only has in stuffed form right now. And her favorite land animal is a tortoise.

Even though the horse is her favorite farm animal, she has been completely fascinated with pigs lately. She saw some piglets at the local fair last year and has been slightly obsessed with them since. And I must admit, even though I don’t see her becoming a pig farmer or one that shows pigs, I can see her caring for them as a veterinarian one day.

From a Love of Animals to Books

And it’s this love of animals that led us to the Olivia books in the first place. We saw them on display at our local library a couple of years ago when she was first starting to read and she was instantly in love. I mean, an adorable pig, funny stories and antics in an easy-to-read book, what more could you ask for?

Whether your kids love the Olivia books already or you’re looking for some fun new readers, I’m sure they will love this adorable Olivia the Pig book activities pack. This pack includes 11 different pages of activities all related to the first book in the series.

Comprehension Questions

I love reading comprehension questions. They are a great way to ensure your child not only read the book, but a great exercise in memory skills. These are important skills they will need to learn in order to properly write book reports and essays in the future. Comprehension questions are a great starting point.

True or False

Sometimes kids have trouble recalling exact details from stories they just read. That’s what I love about true and false questions. They are a often times little simpler to answer than comprehension questions and really help the student think about what happened in the story.

Describe Olivia

Learning to write book reports or different types of essays isn’t always easy. But if you start out with fun prompts and teaching kids how to describe characters, it can be not only easier, but fun too! This page has kids do a very basic description of Olivia and then draw her to reinforce those attributes. And it is a great pre-lesson for descriptive essays!

Nouns, Verbs and Adjectives

Do your kids know their parts of speech? This fun page will help reinforce what they already know or help them learn to distinguish between nouns, verbs and adjectives. There are 12 commonly used words from the book for them to sort and organize correctly.

Spelling Words

Reading is a wonderful way to increase your child’s vocabulary. But another important part of reading is spelling. With these three pages, kids will work on the spelling of eight different words. You can print the cards out to use as flashcards for review purposes and also use the next two pages for some extra handwriting practice as well as spelling!

And MORE!

Kids can learn more about Jackson Pollock and his art by creating their own Jackson Pollock inspired drawing. They can also do a write-and-draw activity about Olivia’s trip to the beach, learn about pigs and do a fun compare & contrast activity.
