 Job 1 - please watch as many times as you like. (Daily would be good)

Watch the Three Little Pigs.  Here are a few options.  A modern one and a more traditional one.

Who are the characters in the story?

What is the setting of the story?

What happens in the story?

Is the wolf a good or bad character?  What words could we use to describe him?


Job 2 - Please read as many times as you can. 

If you have the book at home them please share it with your child.


Job 3 - What kind of character is the wolf?

Have a large piece of paper on the table with a picture of the wolf.  What kind of character is he? what does he look like? Can we think of a variety of words to describe him?  This is a taking activity so parents can either discuss words or write down what your child has said.  eg Bad/ mean/ unkind/ sharp teeth/ black/brown/grey fur/ pointy ears/ sharp claws
