How to use this resource:
This is such a fun extension activity that my kids love. The first step is to decorate the houses after listening to the story.
First of all, we go on a walk around the school to find grass and sticks. About a handful of grass per child is enough. When we get back to the classroom, the children stick the grass on the picture of the house of ‘straw’ and the sticks on the house of ‘sticks’.
We put these aside to dry. Now the children cut the strips of brown paper into ‘bricks’ and arrange these on the house of ‘bricks’ so that it looks like a wall. When they are done, the children color and cut-out the three little pigs and the wolf. The teachers help the children to stick the straws onto the back of each picture of a character.
Once everything is dry, the teacher staples the pages together, or each child places them in a row in front of them. And it’s time for the story-telling to commence!
