Little Pig, Little Pig, Let Me In!

    When I was a little girl, we didn't have a TV. Sooo, I did a lot of reading. I also listened to a lot of stories on records. Let's Pretend was my favorite. Let's Pretend is an OLD series of fairytales on record. I think it actually was a radio show.


Some of the stories were a little macabre. Jorinda and Joringle was really dark. It was about a stepmother who accidently kills her stepson and then buries him underneath the juniper tree. He comes back to life, but still. Creepy.


So anyway, I also had this old record of The Three Little Pigs. I don't remember the name of it but it's still at my momma's house. I typed it up (which was fun) a few years ago. I had to keep stopping the record and write down what I thought it said. The wolf actually sings his lines. I made it into a Readers' Theatre and we performed it for the parents. The kids did a fantastic job.


All that to say, I just uploaded it to TPT! However, there are three versions so it can be differentiated. The first version is straight from the record. It's for more advanced readers. Although I had a struggling reader play the part of the wolf. It took some practice though. But if you use it as an independent station, it's definitely for advanced readers.


The second version is like the first, but I took out some of the more difficult words and shortened it a bit.

The third version has been totally modified for readers who are on a lower level.

There are also character cutouts you can use to make puppets. Just laminate, cut out, and tape a Popscicle stick on the back.
