When your kids make a Three Little Pigs sequencing crown, they’ll put events from the story in order as they make a paper crown they can wear.
Story sequencing helps children identify the beginning, middle, and end of a story. It also helps them retell those events in the order in which they occurred. The ability to sequence events in a story is an important comprehension strategy for readers.
Three Little Pigs Sequencing
Add this fun story sequencing activity to your Three Little Pigs book-based activities to help young readers focus on details in the story.
Print one set of pages for each student. The crown template features the numbers 1-6. Kids will cut out the crown (color it if you printed the black and white version) and the extension bands.
Cut out the six sequencing cards. Again, have students color these if you printed the black and white version.
Find a version of the story to read to your child (or students). As you read the story, have the students color and cut out sequencing cards.
Student should also cut out crown and the two additional strips. These will go behind the child’s head to make the crown wearable.
Have the students follow your directions and glue the characters on to the crown in order (you can use the sequence the characters appeared in the story or you can make up a sequence).
Example: Glue the pig with the straw hours on first to the number one spot. Glue the the wolf with the pile of straw on second to the number two spot. Glue the pig with the stick house on third to the number three spot. Continue until all of the sequencing cards are glued to the crown.
Finish up by assembling the crown. Glue the extension strips together and fit the crown around your student’s head. Cut off the excess. Secure with tape.
Encourage your students to use their crowns to retell the story to a classmate or sibling.
