The Three Pigs Literacy Packet

There is nothing like a classic fairy tale!  At the beginning of the year they are a wonderful way to introduce literacy skills such as story sequencing, characters, and setting.  The students are usually familiar with the stories.  This helps with introducing some higher level literacy skills early in the year. 

Today I am posting my newest literacy packet that uses the fairy tale The Three Pigs.  There are SO many different version of this fairy tale.  For this packet you can use any version of the story that has the same characters (three pigs and wolf). 

Included are the whole group and independent activities for story sequencing, character and setting.  For each independent page I included modifications on the instruction pages for the beginning of the year if needed.  I also included two art projects to match the book characters and a take home coloring page.  Be sure to check it out!

Year Long Writing Packet & a Freebie

August is well underway and the back to school season is in full swing.  From school supplies to school buses in the neighborhood, it all means school is back!  I hope you all had a wonderful summer filled with lot of fun in the sun! 

Now that the lazy days of summer are gone it is time to get back to school.  Over the summer I was busy thinking of new and fun ideas for the school year.  I am excited for all this year will bring for your classrooms. 

To kick off the school year I am posting my All Year Writing Packet.  Last year I created writing packets for fall, winter, spring and summer.  Now you can buy them all together and get the whole year with one purchase.  Be sure to check it out in my TPT store! 

If you have already purchased my seasonal writing packets no need to worry.  Today I am posting a new Back to School Writing Packet for free!  This writing packet is very similar to my seasonal writing packets but is more appropriate for the first months of school.  It would make a great first addition to your writing station.  I hope you find this Back to School Writing Packet useful in your classroom!

Happy back to school everyone!!
