Resource Activities for beginning of week

  1. This Little Pig Made a House Out of Amazon Boxes! (Fine Motor, Gross Motor, Math/Spatial Relations) Make a house out of a large cardboard box that you might have at home.

  1. Lego House Challenge (Science, Math, Spatial Relations)

What can you create with a cup filled with Lego bricks?

  1. Can You Move It? (Science, Fine Motor)

The big bad wolf did a lot of huffing and puffing to blow down the pigs houses. Let’s see how strong your breath is. Gather up some items like a leaf, feather, cotton ball, plastic cup, metal spoon, and a rock. Line up the items and blow on each one individually. See you how far you can move them just by using your breath. 

  1. What happened first? Story sequencing with the 3 Little Pigs. (Pre-Reading, Fine Motor, Reading Comprehension)

After reading the story, cut out the cards and retell the story by putting the cards in order. Ask questions like what happened first, what happened next/after and what happened last.

Extension Activities for end of week

  1. Act out The Three Little Pigs story. (Story Comprehension, Language Arts) Who will be the Big Bad Wolf and who will be the little pig? Can you take turns? 

  2. Listen to “Lots of LIttle Pigs” by Laurie in Berkner. (Story Comprehension, Language Arts) It is a fun song to listen to which lends itself very well to acting out the story of The Three Little Pigs. "Lots Of Little Pigs" song 

  3. Building with foam blocks and shaving cream  (Fine Motor, Science, Sensory)

Pretend you are a bricklayer just like the last pig that made his house out of bricks.  Pretend the shaving cream is the cement and your butter/plastic knife is the trowel, a tool used to smooth the cement. Use foam or wood blocks. This might be fun to do in the bath tub!
