Classroom Procedure

Every lesson plan provides you with a classroom procedure page that outlines a step-by-step guide to follow. You do not have to follow the guide exactly. The guide helps you organize the lesson and details when to hand out worksheets. It also lists information in the yellow box that you might find useful. You will find the lesson objectives, state standards, and number of class sessions the lesson should take to complete in this area. In addition, it describes the supplies you will need as well as what and how you need to prepare beforehand. For the activity, you will need crayons, colored pencils, markers, scissors, and string. You may also have some additional materials for students to use as they build their masks.

Teacher Notes

The teacher notes page provides an extra paragraph of information to help guide the lesson and remind you what to focus on. It explains that you can teach this lesson in a whole-class setting or as an independent, small-group activity. The blank lines on this page are available for you to write out thoughts and ideas you have as you prepare the lesson.

MODERN THREE LITTLE PIGS LESSON PLAN CONTENT PAGES

The Modern Three Little Pigs lesson plan contains three content pages. The story includes various text features such as bold words and images. Students will need to pay attention to other features as they read through the story, including point of view, main idea, and figurative language. You can read the story as a class or have students read it alone.

MODERN THREE LITTLE PIGS LESSON PLAN WORKSHEETS

The Modern Three Little Pigs lesson plan includes two worksheets: an activity worksheet and a practice worksheet. Each one will help students solidify their grasp of the material they learned throughout the lesson. You can refer to the classroom procedure guidelines to know when to hand out each worksheet.

ACT IT OUT ACTIVITY WORKSHEET

For the activity, students will get to act out the story they read. They will first color the pictures on the activity pages and then cut them out and turn them into masks. Place students in groups of 4 (or more if they want to add characters, such as a cafe worker or social media characters). Students can add dialogue and make their story unique while still following the fable’s story arc.

MODERN THREE LITTLE PIGS PRACTICE WORKSHEET

The practice worksheet requires students to answer a series of 11 questions. These questions all relate to the content pages, so students will need to refer to them often for the answers. In addition, each question provides which reading tool the question corresponds to, such as text feature, vocabulary, or comprehension.

Worksheet Answer Keys

At the end of the lesson plan document is an answer key for the practice worksheet. The correct answers are all in red to make it easier for you to compare them with students’ responses. If you choose to administer the lesson pages to your students via PDF, you will need to save a new file that omits these pages. Otherwise, you can simply print out the applicable pages and keep these as reference for yourself when grading assignments.
