- Pre-Reading Last week we learned about how wolves are real animals, even though they do not live around where we live. We read about a big, bad wolf in “Little Red Riding Hood.” This week, we are going to read about another big, bad wolf in the “Three Little Pigs” stories. We’ll read a story, then tell it as a play. We will watch a video about the Three Pigs, too. Then we will make our own houses, like in the book. Finally, we will get a new book and go back to class. Let’s get started.
- Reflection: Use pig masks to re-enact the story.
Three little Pigs
Walking down the street
A big bad wolf they did meet
So they ran home fast
and shut the door tight.
No big wolf will get them tonight.
A little girl
Spied a big bad wolf
"What’s in you basket"
"May I have a bite"
"NO," yelled the little girl
Who ran in fright.
- Circle: This week we met more big, bad wolves… in the 3 little pig story. Wolves are beautiful and majestic creatures, but people use them as “bad guys” in stories because they are also fearsome and big.
- Closing Song: Open,shut them. Open, shut them. Raise your hands up high. Open, shut them, open shut them, wave and say good bye.
