One of the many themes I do with my students is fairy tales
It’s a great unit for “March is Reading Month”
complete with a super-fun parade of “book characters” or something to wind down with at the end of the year
No matter when you slip in a fairy tale
or two, I think your students will enjoy making a “flip-the flap fairy tale face”.
This cute little piggy is the first in a series of fairy tale
crafts that will help students practice the “sequence & retell a story”
standards. As you might have guessed, this one is for “The 3 Little Pigs”
Simply run the pig pattern off on pink construction paper or card stock. Students trim & add a few highlights with crayons.
For some 3D pop, have children bend the tips of the ears forward. The pattern already has eyes, but for added pizzazz, attach a pair of wiggle eyes with glue dots.
The pig’s “nose”
tells the tale, as students color, cut & collate
the oval pages into a little booklet, which is then stapled to the pig’s head.
I've included black & white
patterns, as well as colorful
ones, so that you can quickly & easily make a sample
When everyone is done, have children pick a partner and take turns telling the story of “The 3 Little Pigs”
to each other. We sometimes do this sort of thing with our older reading buddies
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your kiddos go hog wild over this “print & go” craftivity.
Wishing you a fun-filled day.
