I'll Huff and I'll Puff

Three Little Pigs Snack
 The Gingerbread Man, The Three Bears and The Three Little Pigs have provided a lot of activity for our MWF classes.  We have read the traditional story and many non-traditional versions.  Here is a list of books for you and your child to check out at your local library or book store---

In our dramatic play area we have a house with three chairs, three bowls and a lot of imagination.  It is fun to watch the children interpret the story.  We also have a houses of straw, stick and brick we will be using for play. 

The children created a bear and a pig.  These crafts were about scissor use and the children are really good!

Want to do more?  Make the Three Little Pigs snack at home---  It's easy---pretzel sticks, potato sticks and chocolate chunks (found in the bakery aisle). Gingerbread isn't just for Christmas---make up a batch and see what is created but be careful when you open the oven!  See if your child can retell the stories to you.  Recalling details and putting stories in sequence is an important skill for reading comprehension.  You and your child can write your own version of the stories---The Gingerbread Ninja or Football Player.  Who baked them and who did they run away from? 

Who's afraid of the Big Bad Wolf? Not me!
