If you’re ready for a story take a seat.

                       ii.     Open/name items
                       iii.    Do you know a story that has all these… plus a wolf?

  1.  Word of the Week:  (Forms a cornerstone of the lesson, aids in understanding and connecting text themes)
    1. English: Villain.  The Villain is a bad guy in a book, the troublemaker.                                 i.      Say it, syllabicate it.  Spell it in the air with two fingers.
    2. Spanish:  Villano (vee-AH – no)
    3. ASL (American Sign Language.)  ( since I couldn’t find villain, I went with the signs for evil and character, but use the terms “bad” and “character”  evil= index fingers point in spirals like a long beard from either side of jaw.  Character is letter “c’ spiraled across shoulder to chest.

  1. 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.

Story  #1: The Three Little Pigs (Stoneway Books, 1987)
  1. READ.
  2. Reflection:  Use pig masks to re-enact the story.
  3. Jokes: 
Q: What do pigs write letters with?          A: Pig Pens
Q: What kind of pig does karate?               A: Pork Chop

Knock Knock. Who’s There? 
Oink Oink.  Oink Oink Who? 
Make up your mind, are you a pig or an owl?

Tongue Twister: Percy Pig is plump and pink. I like that plump pink pig, I think.


Big Bad Wolf /Tune “This old Man” 

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 
Wearing red 
Spied a big bad wolf 
Who said 
"What’s in you basket" 
"May I have a bite" 
"NO," yelled the little girl 
Who ran in fright.

Resource #2: (Three Little Pigs Video)  Walt Disney big bad wolf song

CRAFT:  Students will make three houses – straw, twigs, and bricks.  Template @ 

Check out books

  1. 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. 
  2. Closing Song: Open,shut them.  Open, shut them.  Raise your hands up high. Open, shut them, open shut them, wave and say good bye.
  3. Line Up By… Every week, we line up according to different criteria, makes kids pay attention, work on grouping, differentiating among options. Today, line up by birth order – oldest, middle..
