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:
Big Bad Wolf
Here is the script I used:
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:
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.
