ELA Focus Skills: Concepts of Print, Sequencing, Storytelling

Display the “Our Three Little Pigs” story that children are working on. Reread what they have already dictated. Track the words with children as you read.

Tell children that today they are going to finish writing and illustrating their story. Encourage children to illustrate each page of their story. Let them choose what to draw, but guide the activity so that each important part of the story is illustrated. Some children may draw more than one picture to fill the gaps.

Help children put the pictures in the correct sequence. Then bind the pages into a booklet. Display the story next to the original story in the Library Center for children to revisit. If children made individual stories instead of a group story, display them all for children to view at the Library Center.

Take It Further: You may want to invite families and friends to view the children’s version of the folktale.
