The Three Little Pigs Literature Study

This week we started a literature study of the Three Little Pigs. On Monday we created a Circle Map with all the things we knew about The Three Little Pigs story.


The students were also given a Three Little Pigs Reading Response Log. This is where we are keeping all the information about our literature study. We completed a Story Map after we read each story.

After reading a few stories we created a Noun Chart. The students each choose a noun from the stories to illustrate.



Here is the beginning of our Story Map chart. This is where we will place all the story elements of each story we read.


Yesterday our Buzz Book was devoted to describing the Big Bad Wolf. The students later completed their own charts in their Reading Response Journals







At the beginning of next week we will explore variations of The Three Little Pigs. Here are just a few of the books we’ll read.

The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig

Three Little Cajun Pigs

The Three Little Gators


The Three Horrid Little Pigs

The Three Swingin' Pigs

Have a great weekend.


  1. Ms. Arnold... I'm amazed with all of your INCREDIBLE resources. Thanks for all of your hard work. You are appreciated!

  2. You are so welcome. I love every minute of it. I love creating resources for fellow teachers and my first graders every year.

    Thank you for the 3 Little Pigs activities. We are reading fairy tales this last week of school and your unit will be a fun addition to our study.

  4. Thanks for all that you do! I appreciated the downloads short vowel anchor charts nouns etc.

    FYI There are a couple of cute variations of The Three Little Pigs that tie in with a science unit on animals and habitats. One is The Three Little Javelinas (desert) and the other is The Three Little Fish and the Big Bad Shark (oceans).

    I love your site!


Kind words are appreciated here.
