A Story by Nursery
Once upon a time there were 3 little pigs made of pancakes and yummy stuff. We gobbled them up and they were good. The End
The Nursery classes have had such fun reading and retelling the story of The 3 Little Pigs. The children picked a character, either pig or wolf, and we painted ears, made headbands and acted out the story. Ms. Primrose was kind enough to act as the audience!
Listening to stories and being able to retell their plots are early language and literacy skills. Students use their working memory and executive functioning skills to organize key story details; the repetition of lines helps children learn the cadence of language; and acting out a narrative helps solidify comprehension skills.
The story provides enough repetition and lines for the children to repeat, and repeat they did! We huffed and puffed, as the wolf, and the little pigs weren't letting anything get past their chinny, chin, chins.
The children decorated the piggies' houses of straw, sticks, and bricks. We also enjoyed making, decorating, and eating pig pancakes. And we created collages of three little pig pictures, made pigs out of shapes, and built pig and wolf popsicle stick puppets.
