The Three Little Pigs

More great folk tale fun today.
I honestly could do folk and fairy tales all year long. It is always amazing to find just how many students have never heard of story of the Three Little Pigs. At first, these students enjoy this story with simple thrill and excitement. The other students that are familiar with the story, are ready for deeper study, such as story elements, author's purpose, and character study.

Here are a few of the activities that we enjoyed today.

Dramatic Play

Read a CVC Word, but watch out for the Big Bad Wolf!

Shake a Pig. Which word will he land on next?

Making puppets for retelling at the art center.

Reading a leveled guided reader.
These activities and many more are included in this thematic unit.
 I am currently working on Folk Tales: Part Two. Watch for more Folk tale fun to come...
