Students of all ages enjoy “The True Story of the Three Little Pigs,” and will love performing this clever Readers’ Theater play which takes place after the story ends. The play includes the wolf, one pig and three news reporters. Your students will laugh at the banter between the characters as the wolf tries, yet again, to prove that he really isn’t all that big and bad. You can also make a story wheel with your students, which will reinforce the story elements. (See preview).

If you think this play will be a good choice for your class, I have the True Story of the Three Little Pigs activity package. It includes the same script, over 60 pages of lesson plan, graphic organizers and posters, as well 2 craftivities. You can check out the bundle here…

My students are really enjoying performing this in class. I can also use this with students who are not in the classroom due to various reasons.

My students loved reading, practicing, creating props for, and performing this Readers Theater in front of our class! It was perfect for my higher readers, and extremely entertaining for our audience.
