Three Little Pigs
Traditional; adapted by Eric Litwin

Lyrics:
 
This is the story of the three little pigs
They had to build themselves a home of their own
Well, the first pig grabbed whatever he saw
Built himself a house out of straw

Everything was alright, until...
(Howl!)
And he knocked on the door
(Boom, boom, boom!)
And the little pig said, “Who is it?”
And the wolf said, “Little pig, little pig, let me in. Little pig, little pig, let me in.”
“Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin!”
“I’m going to huff and puff” (little louder) “Huff and puff” (little louder) “Huff and puff”

Oh no! The house came tumbling down.
Run!

Well, the next pig thought he was slick
Built himself a house out of sticks

Everything was alright, until...
(Howl!)
And he knocked on the door
(Boom, boom, boom!)
And the little pig said, “Who is it?”
And the wolf said, “Little pig, little pig, let me in. Little pig, little pig, let me in.”
“Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin!”
“I’m going to huff and puff” (little louder) “Huff and puff” (little louder) “Huff and puff”

Oh! The house came tumbling down.
Run!

Well, the last pig knew all the tricks
Built himself a house out of bricks

Everything was alright, until...
(Howl!)
And he knocked on the door
(Boom, boom, boom!)
And the little pig said, “Who is it?”
And the wolf said, “Little pig, little pig, let me in. Little pig, little pig, let me in.”
“Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin!”
“I’m going to huff and puff” (little louder) “Huff and puff” (little louder) “Huff and puff”

Nothing. The house didn’t move. It’s made of brick.
If I were you, I’d build a fire in the fireplace and put a pot of boiling water on it
‘Cause here comes the wolf running towards your house.

He’s going up the side.
He’s going down the chimney.
How’s the boiling water? (Hot!)
How’s the fire? (Hot!)

Well, that wolf landed in the boiling water, he shot right back up through the chimney,
Ran into the woods, and he never bothered them again.
And that’s the story of the Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf!

Activities:

Story song: Let the CD play, have Mr. Eric tell the story on the CD, and do all of the responses with your child. Model what your child can do with the movements and echoes.  

Color in the Picture and Draw Pigs: Color the picture of the “Three Little Pigs” in the coloring sheet.  Show your child how to draw a pig and draw them all over the coloring book page or on a separate piece of paper.

Art Project/ Puppet Show: Make your own puppet show!  All you need are three pigs and one wolf.  If you have them, finger puppets or hand puppets work great.  If not, make your own!  Draw them on paper, color them in, cut them out and paste them on popsicle sticks.  Then, play the story song on the CD and act out the song with your “puppets.”

Listening Comprehension: A great exercise to do with a story song is to test your child’s understanding and recall of the story and what happened.  See if they can tell the story back to you or ask specific questions triggering the more memorable lines in the story, like “What did the wolf say when he knocked on the door?” (I’m going to huff and puff) or “What was the pig’s response?” (not by the hair of my chinny chin chin) or ask “What did each pig build his house out of?” (straw, sticks, brick).
