January 9-13


In reading, we worked on comparing and contrasting stories. We started by reading the “original” story The Three Little Pigs, where the wolf eats the pigs, and the “new” version, where the pigs move on to their siblings' house. When we were done, we created a list of things that were the same in each story and things that were different. Then each day we read a different version (The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig, The Three Little Javelinas, and The Three Little Hawaiian Pigs and the Magic Shark). After each story, we listed the ways it was the same as the original and the ways it was different. We found that many of the stories had a lot of things in common except for the setting or the place the story takes place. Our big project this week was to create the characters and setting from the story and to use the props to retell the story. We ended the week by retelling the story of the three little pigs to our 5th grade buddies using the puppets and setting we created.
