This week we start off with a classic story that everyone knows and loves!
Materials: YouTube, paper, printer, scissors, tape or glue, pencil crayons (or crayons or markers) and popsicle sticks (or straws, chopsticks etc).
Main Learning Outcomes: Developing fine motor skills and early literacy.
(1) First, we will begin by gathering together for one of our favourite stories, “The Three Little Pigs”. If you don’t have the book at home, you can listen to it by following this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDh1XlGzx3w
(2) Now we are going to make our own character cut-outs. Go to this link to find the templates for all of the characters and props in the story: http://kizclub.com/storypatterns/folktales/threepigs.pdf
Now encourage your child to colour them and cut them out. (If you do not have a printer, you can have your child try to draw each of the characters themselves and cut them out.) Once they are cut out, tape or glue a popsicle stick (or other suggested item) to the back of each character to make a puppet. If you don’t have popsicle sticks, you can use straws, chopsticks, old pencil crayons, disposable cutlery or anything else around the house you can think of.
