These are a beautiful, organized way for you class to explore the story elements of several favorite versions of this classic fairy tale. I intentionally created it to be meaningful, but not take up tons of time for younger writers (for example, kids fill in the blanks on some parts instead of writing the entire thing).

All of this has been created for, tested, and loved in my real-life Kindergarten classroom.

Other happy teachers have said: ❤️"My 1st graders LOVED this! They couldn't wait each day to do the next story!"

There are pages for 10 different story variations included so you are free to do them all OR choose your favorites:

⭐The Three Little Pigs (traditional)

⭐The Three Ninja Pigs

⭐The Three Little Javelinas

⭐The Three Little Pigs: An Architectural Tale

⭐The True Story of the Three Little Pigs

⭐The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig

⭐The Three Little Dassies

⭐The Three Little Pigs and the Somewhat Bad Wolf

⭐The Three Little Aliens and the Big Bad Robot

⭐The Three Horrid Little Pigs

I like to choose my top five and have kids write about one story per day for a week (and then also read more just for fun).

HINT: If you are having trouble finding any of these books in your library, I’ve definitely seen videos of them all being read aloud on YouTube so they’d be easy to search for in a pinch. ☺

Once you’ve come up with your plan, make copies of the journals for the kids with the pages you want. I always run them double sided to save paper. We do a page a day. I keep them safe all week long and then let kids bring them home on Friday.

On each page, you’ll find:

OPINION: a spot for kids to give their opinion of the book and rank it with 1-4 stars

FUN FACTS: a little checklist of common story traits (Did it have a repeated phrase?, Did the bad character go down the chimney in the end?, etc.)

REPEATED PHRASES: voice balloons where students get to fill in the missing words from the repeated phrases. It's fun to compare and contrast these across the different books.

CHARACTERS: a list of characters with a few more blanks to complete

SETTING: space to discuss the setting

PROBLEM/ PLOT: a description of this (usually kids just cross out the houses that got blown down)

SOLUTION: a space to say if it had a happy or sad ending and describe what happened

Thanks for looking! Check out the PREVIEW for a better look at what is included.
