Story Board
Welcome to Mrs. Picklebottom's nursery school classroom. Here at the Rinky-Dinky-Dink School, the students are little pigs! Mrs. Picklebottom and her students--Suzy, Buster, and Chester--have a full day ahead of them.
Fortunately, Suzy's father is in the classroom today as the parent helper. Mr. Simon brought a snack, too. "It starts out with a layer of Graham crackers, then there's a layer of peanut butter..." and you'll never believe how it's topped off!
At circle time, the pigs take turns using the weather board. Yesterday it was Buster's turn. Today it is Chester's turn. Tomorrow it will be...that's right, Suzy's turn. Wait a minute! There's something fishy going on every time Chester looks away from the weather board. Turn around really quickly, Chester, and maybe you'll catch it!
While Suzy and Buster pick out costumes for a play, Chester plays with the blocks. How many blocks can Chester stack without knocking the pile over? That's funny. Chester feels like something is following him. Turn around quickly Chester and maybe you'll catch it...but look out for the blocks!
Now Chester has used all the blocks and he won't share. Suzy and Buster are arguing about whose turn it is to pick the parts for the play. Not taking turns and not sharing makes three sad and grumpy little pigs. They need help from Mrs. Picklebottom and the audience to sing The Sharing Song. Singing the song helps everyone remember how to share and take turns.

Listen to a song from the show!

Working together, the little pigs put on a spectacular show! The Three Billy Goats Gruff, features a special guest star--Mr. Simon, playing the Troll! "Stick to the script Mr. Simon."
The first play is such a success that the little pigs go on to perform Jack and the Beanstalk. Suzy plays "Jack" and Chester plays "Jack's mother".
Mr. Simon and Buster team up to play the giant. And with a little imagination, a toy frog can be the Hen that lays golden eggs.
Let's hear it for the Rinky-Dinky-Dink Players!
