Hello my friends!

I wrote this song a year ago after I noticed the children I worked with wanted to listen to The Three Little Pigs story over and over again! I thought it helps remember the story in a nice, melodic way.

Just singing the songs and reciting the chants and rhymes with children, provides a great foundation for literacy development, but if we really want to capitalize on the full range of benefits in using songs, chants and rhymes as a springboard to literacy, we need to purposefully use them as learning opportunities.

The Three Little Pigs is one of the most loves stories for little ones! It is great if you have songs for the stories you tell your children as it helps them to  better understand the connections between words and actions and rhythms.

This young pig built a house

Out of straw he built a house

Big bad wolf huffed and puffed

Blew it into shreds

First pig ran to brother’s instead.

Second pig built a house

Out of sticks he built a house

Big bad wolf huffed and puffed

Blew it all away

Second pig ran to brother’s instead

Third young pig built a house

Out a bricks he built a house

Big bad wolf huffed and puffed

Couldn’t blow it down

Three pigs laughed and had great fun.

You can transform this song into a singing game or a drama play by choosing a wolf and divide the other children into 3 groups: a group of ‘first pigs’, a group of ‘second pigs’ and a group of ‘third pigs’ and while you sing the first verse you ask the first group to ‘act out’ building their house and then the wolf comes and huffs and puffs and the pigs run to the second group of pigs. Next, sing the second verse and the second group ‘acts out’ building their stick houses, then the wolf comes, huffs and puffs and all the pigs run to the third group of children who built the houses of bricks. Hope you got the idea!

Have fun!

Bella
