- “3 Little Pigs” story
Anticipatory Set Instructional Input Modeling Check for Understanding Practice Closure - How many of you have heard the story “The 3 Little Pigs”?
- Today we’re going to read that story together, but we’re going to add sound effects to it using some really fun instruments.
- (Introduce the instruments) For our story, we’re going to need some instruments that sound like wind, can anybody think about what instruments would do that the best? How about the sound of someone building something? How about straw falling? Sticks falling? Bricks falling? What about foot steps?
- Ok, I think we should also have some background music that goes along with our story. So, I’m going to have someone whose job it is to just play quietly as I read the story. Now if you’re the person doing the background music, do you think it should sound the same throughout the whole story? Or should the sound change for the mood of the story at different parts?
- (pass out instruments) The instrument that you get is what you get so don’t complain, and after a little bit, we can switch parts so different people can try being different sounds.
- (read the story, and while reading, pause for sound effects to be made, and try to switch instruments after major events happen in the story)
- Once upon a time there were three little pigs and the time came for them to leave home and seek their fortunes.
Before they left, their mother told them " Whatever you do , do it the best that you can because that's the way to get along in the world.
The first little pig built his house out of straw because it was the easiest thing to do.
The second little pig built his house out of sticks. This was a little bit stronger than a straw house.
The third little pig built his house out of bricks.
One night the big bad wolf, who dearly loved to eat fat little piggies, came along and saw the first little pig in his house of straw. He said "Let me in, Let me in, little pig or I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow your house in!"
"Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin", said the little pig.
But of course the wolf did blow the house in and ate the first little pig.
The wolf then came to the house of sticks.
"Let me in ,Let me in little pig or I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow your house in" "Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin", said the little pig. But the wolf blew that house in too, and ate the second little pig.
"Or I'll huff and I'll puff till I blow your house in"
"Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin" said the pigs.
Well, the wolf huffed and puffed but he could not blow down that brick house.
But the wolf was a sly old wolf and he climbed up on the roof to look for a way into the brick house.
The little pig saw the wolf climb up on the roof and lit a roaring fire in the fireplace and placed on it a large kettle of water.
When the wolf finally found the hole in the chimney he crawled down and KERSPLASH right into that kettle of water and that was the end of his troubles with the big bad wolf.
The next day the little pig invited his mother over . She said "You see it is just as I told you. The way to get along in the world is to do things as well as you can." Fortunately for that little pig, he learned that lesson. And he just lived happily ever after! (http://www.shol.com/agita/pigs.htm)
