Pepe the Pig loves to watch everything! He always knows what’s going on. If he really concentrates, he can step back and understand how things work together. Sometimes he gets distracted and doesn’t pay attention to the “big picture,” but he’s always excited about finding new things and looking at things in a different way!

Lucy the Sheep loves to talk! She also loves to let everybody know what she’s thinking by using her body, her eyes and the look on her face. Even the tone of her voice will tell someone who is talking to her how she feels sometimes. Sometimes Lucy doesn’t understand what someone is trying to tell her, but she’s always patient and never judges anyone. She’s quite an amazing pig!

Sequencing

Ace the Rooster loves to keep everything in order! He’s always right on top of what should be happening at any given time. Sometimes all this order gets overwhelming, but Ace just slows down and concentrates and everything turns out OK. When the other animals or Mac get off-track, Ace is there to lend a helping hand!
