Students of all ages enjoy “The True Story of the Three Little Pigs,” and will love performing this clever Readers’ Theater play which takes place after the story ends. Play features the wolf, 1 pigs, and 3 news reporters. Your students will laugh at the banter between the characters as the wolf tries, yet again, to prove that he really isn’t all that big and bad. I've also included a fun story wheel for students to make, helping you reinforce story elements (see preview for example).

If this play looks like something you know your class will enjoy, I also have a True Story of the Three Little Pigs activity bundle, which includes this same script with over 60 pages of lesson plans, graphic organizers, anchor charts and posters, and 2 craftivities. You can check out the bundle here...
