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.

The third little pig met a man with some b-r-i-ck-s.

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

The man gave the little pig some bricks, and he built a house.

Then the old w-o-l-f came along.

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

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

"Then I'll huff and I'll p-u-ff, and I'll blow your house in," said the wolf.

"You may huff and you may puff, but you cannot blow my house in," said the little pig.

The wolf huffed and he puffed, and he huffed and h-e puffed.

But he could not b-l-ow the house in.
