The Three Little Pigs

Another favorite fairy tale that goes along with the farm unit is The Three Little Pigs.  I loved acting this story out so much that we included it in our end of the year program.  My husband cut out 3 house shapes from masonite, and some parents helped me decorate them to be the straw house, the stick house and the brick house.  They were large but light weight and the children could easily carry them and hold them.  They had a cut out window for the children to peek through.

I wrote a simplified script of the play that we used for the program.  The characters in this version were:

Mother pig

Straw pig

Stick pig

Brick pig


Big Bad Wolf

Here is the script I used:

The Three Little Pigs

Here are the props I used when I told the story to my class.

Here is a reproducible that children can use to retell this story.

Here are pictures to sequence this story.

Here are printable versions:

3 Pigs printables

3 Pigs project

I made up a song for this story to the tune of 3 Blind Mice

Three little pigs, three little pigs

Each built a house, each built a house

The big bad wolf came and huffed and puffed

The straw and stick houses were not so tough

Only the brick house was strong enough

For three little pigs, three little pigs.

    I love the props for the three little pigs. I’m going to make the house fronts. How do you keep them standing? It looks like they are held against something? Thanks so much. Janet K.

    I’ve looked long and hard for these sequencing pictures for many years. I used them for Little Red Hen, and many other children’s stories years ago when I first started teaching and loved them but haven’t been able to find them again for years. Thanks so much for providing these!

    I would love to have a copy of your Frank Schaffer “Fairy Tale Sequencing” workbook. I have contacted Carson Dellosa (they bought out Frank Schaffer) and they do not carry it. It is out of production. You can’t even buy it on eBay! I would be willing to pay you for it.
