3 Little Pigs – Bringing Stories to Life
Happy Turtles Cinderford are in the process of making lots of wonderful story sacks that the children can use daily. The toddler children have chosen ‘The three little pigs’ as one of their sacks. To bring this alive for them, they went for a walk to look at the different types of houses and buildings in the area. The children talked about tall, small, brick and wooden houses.
When they got to the field, they discovered it was very muddy. They enjoyed squelching through the mud to find a variety of sticks.
When they got back from nursery, the sticks were happily popped into their story sack and it is now ready to be read 😊
When we bring books to life for the children, it allows them to explore new language, understand order and sequence whilst encouraging them to use their own imaginations. A simple story, like the 3 little pigs, suddenly comes alive and all kinds of learning begins to take place.
