The Three Pigs is a TL written by David Wiesner and is a Caldecott award winner. This is a spin on the classic tale that is a must read for all children! This is a book that is great for a RA. #ucflae3414f19

This is a great resource for teachers to use when teaching this book!

KevinKantola The UDL strategy I would use is EDL 1.3, offer alternatives for visual information, by creating a storytelling presentation for the students. The ESOL strategy that I will be using is 14: Simplify your speech by making it slower and redundant. 3d
kgarzon I love your idea of providing more visual cues via storytelling! It would not only aid EL students in following the storyline, but also engage the class as a whole. 3d

The Three Pigs, a TL is written and illustrated by David Wiesner and is a Caldecott Medalist. Three pigs have built their houses out of the different materials: straw, sticks and bricks. The first two pigs make fun of the third pig for using brick because it takes him longer to build his house. However, when a wolf comes ready to huff and puff to eat the pigs, which house will remain standing? This book would be great for a RT. #UCFLAE3414F19

JRone UDL strategy 4.1 Vary the methods for response and navigation would align with this book because you can have children create their own reader's theatre plays to go along with it. If they don't want to use a reader's theatre, they can use other methods like storytelling to retell the story. ESOL #6 Continually monitor students‘ comprehension will be beneficial to the students to see how they are following along with the story. 4d
JRone The lesson plan https://www.teachingbooks.net/content/Wiesner_activity_guide.pdf allows children to get into an in-depth discussion about the book. It also uses compare and contrast strategies to compare this version of The Three Pigs to other versions of it. 4d

This AMAZING picture book is a cute folklore written in the traditional literature genre, by David Wiesner who illustrated the book as well. This book won the Caldecott Medal in 2002 for being the most distinguished American picture book for children and is one of my favorite books! While we all know the traditional story of the Three Little Pigs, what makes this book stand out is that the author adds an interesting and adventurous twist to it.

ccipriati The story the same with the three pigs building houses: one made with straw, one made with sticks, and one made with bricks. But, at the same time that the wolf blows down the first pig‘s house, which is made out of, the first pig is blown “out of the story!” Instead of being eaten, however, in the traditional story, the first pig remains in the book but watches from the sides. 4w
ccipriati The same thing happens to the second pig! The pig is now messing around with the story and moving the pictures on the pages. They then “fly” away on one of the pages of the story and transition into a whole bunch of different nursery rhymes. This is a great book for a read-aloud or a dramatic reenactment with your students! It‘s also a good way to get the students to invent their own endings. 4w
ccipriati The UDL Guideline strategy that I have chosen for this book is 2.5 which is the strategy intended to illustrate the story through multiple media. You can do this by using props and having the students tell the story with you while reading aloud or you can create a video for the students to watch to follow along with the story. #UCFLAE3414F19 4w
ccipriati The ESOL Strategy that I selected for this book is 4 which is the strategy intended to link the lesson topic to the students‘ prior knowledge. Most students will know many of the nursery rhymes mentioned in the book so it won‘t be too difficult to activate their prior knowledge so as to help them understand the story better. 4w
ccipriati A cute lesson plan to create using this book to include in your classroom would be to have the students come up with their own stories using the three little pigs. They can make up the story of having the pig also join another book that they know.
This link provides a read-aloud that will capture the student‘s attention and comprehension. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NATbRmDKBHo

I love the humor in this book even for adults. I mean kids books are always cute but sometimes you just appreciate them for being kids books but I actually thought this book kept me reading.

The three pigs by David Wiesner is the 2002 Caldecott award winner. This is such a fun twist on a classic tale. The story starts out how we all know it but then the pigs jump off the page ( which makes for some really cool and captivating illustrations) and into other stories. The whole thing gets really silly and is a great read for kids.

The Three Pigs by David Wiesner, 2001. Caldecott Award Winning Book. I really enjoyed this twist on the original story of The Three Little Pigs. The author is very creative in how the pigs escaped the wolf! The illustrations do a great job at delivering how the pigs are escaping the story by leaving the pages and entering other tales! Great way to introduce traditional literature! I loved it!

While the pigs are following the story, it‘s interesting to see how the story slowly goes away. The reader should pay attention to the pigs slowly breaking the fourth wall in this story.

Award: Caldecott
Review: This book is a new twist on the story The Three Little Pigs. It chronicles the journey of three pigs leaving home and battling the big bad wolf. Then the book takes a turn when the pigs leave the book and start exploring other fairy tales. It‘s a very different book that young children would need to understand the original little three pigs before they understand this book.

Review: The Three Pigs by David Wiesner, 2001. Caldecott Medal Book. This book is a fantastic spin off of the traditional three little pigs story. The illustrations add even more life to the story.
Blurb: This book would be best read to children/students that are familiar with the original story so they would be able to make the connections.

This book won a Caldecott medal. This book was very good. It was like the classic 3 pigs story but then had a change. I loved how some of the pages had the characters jump out of the actual page.

The three Pigs was a picture book that had interesting illustrations taking it from a regular picture book and swtitching it to other stories with different art styles and text writings. Kept you wondering where and how it might end.

Cute story book that gave a twist on the original story. This time all three pigs were saved and made it a happy book with lots of twists and turns that kept you wondering where it might go.

I like his book because it gives an alternate ending and helps children think creatively. I would use this in my future classroom by letting the children create their own alternate ending to the book.

The three little pigs is a book that won the Caldecott medal. It uses the words in the story in the pictures to make an alternate ending. It uses color, and creates feeling for realism when the pigs “jump“ out of the book. It uses other children stories to make this book as well. I also think that this book would be great in a kindergarten to third grade classroom, but background knowledge of the original three little pigs story is a must.

Caldecott Medal Book. This was a very interesting book because of how it was written. It contained a mashup of different fairy tail stories. In the end a dragon helps scare the big bad wolf.
