Retelling With The 3 Little Pigs
I think every kindergarten teacher should do at least 3 fairy tales during the year with their students. Why? First, the kids absolutely adore hearing the various versions and you can easily compare and contrast them in terms that a five year old can easily understand. If you have never done the 3 Little Pigs you will be shocked at how many versions exist. It is a story children love to retell and act out and changing your voice to become the wolf makes them laugh hysterically. They never get tired of screaming, "Then I'll huff and I'll puff..." The year is coming to a close and I am using this as part of my assessment for retelling, prediction, and story elements. Consider this for next year if you are already packing. I hope your summer is relaxing and filled with family fun. If you have a extra few days come and see me at the I Teach K conference in Vegas. I am presenting on blogging! At least stop in and give me a hug. Right?
