lesson image

Instructions: The instructor reads an excerpt from Treadwell Reader's story, 'The Three Little Pigs.' The instructor pronounces the dashed words phonetically and asks children to call out the words.

Once upon a time there were three little p-i-g-s.

One morning the mother said, "You must go out and make your living."

So they all set out.

The first little pig met a m-a-n with some straw.

He said, "Please give me some straw, I want to build a house."

The m-a-n gave the little pig some straw.

Then the little p-i-g made a house.

Soon an old wolf came along.

He knocked at the door and said, "Little pig, little pig, let me come i-n."

The little pig said, "N-o, no, by the hair of my chinny, chin, chin. I won't let you in."

The wolf said, "Then I'll huff and I'll puff, and I'll blow your house i-n."

So he huffed and he puffed, and he blew the house in.

Then he ate up the little p-i-g.
