The "Three Little Pigs" is a beautiful classic story loved by many children. It has many interesting parts with a good ending. With that in mind, I have created a set of activities to help the child engage, interact and have fun with this material.
Table of Contents:
Page 1 is a title page.
Page 2-4 is the descriptive text of the story with lots of pictures.
Page 5-7 There are 6 questions on the plot of the story and the child cuts and pastes the pictures from page 7 to answer the questions on main characters, beginning part of the story, etc.
Page 8-9 There are 10 questions on recalling the details with prompted answers on dotted lines for writing.
Page 10 is a worksheet on rhyming words
Page 11 is sentence writing
12-13 is an activity where the child cuts and pastes the picture strips to match with the sentence strips to make a mini folder story.
Page 14 is matching words with pictures (vocabulary)
Page 15-16 is a sequence writing using dialogue with speech bubbles and pictures, comic style.
Page 17 is re-creating the story by using names for the characters, places and adding more drama and effect to the story.
Page 18 is dramatization and art and craft. Cut out the figures and use popsicle sticks for the characters. Use small milk cartons or note cards with stands as houses.
Page 19-20 Sample and Template for making the houses.
Page 21 is a page of pictures of different kinds of houses or buildings like grass huts, houses made of sticks, palace, igloo and tree house for vocabulary extension.
Page 22 credits page.
In line with this packet, I have compiled a "Craft ideas and Imaginative Play" activity that goes with this theme.
I have enjoyed creating this lesson of different writing activities, and I hope you and your class or student will enjoy it, too.
If you like this freebie, please leave a comment or a rating. I appreciate it.
This story somewhat reminds me of another story in the Bible that says not to build our house on the sand but to build it on the Rock who is Jesus!
There are 2 other units on The Three Little Pigs; one on Story Telling and Narrating Skills and the other on Imaginative Play. Also there is a unit on Onomatopoeia which teaches the sound words for Country and City Sounds. You can build a lesson plan for a week using these units.
1. The Three Little Pigs- Read and Writing Literacy
2. The Three Little Pigs- Story Telling and Narrating
3. Onomatopoeia -Country and City Sounds
4. Three Little Pigs Imaginative Play
On the first day or 2, the children will read the story and know the text, working on the different aspects of the story.
Next, the child will learn how to re-tell the story by learning the use of onomatopoeia, similes and metaphors.
Then the child will reproduce the story by adding their own color, expression, details and imagination which can vary from each child.
Finally, the child can present the script by using his or her ideas in narrating the story or the groups can put on a short play or drama.
This can be really fun for a week.
