• Step 1 - Los tres cerdos pequeños Kit


    • Teacher resources

      In this traditional story the three pigs set out to build their own houses. The first pig builds a house of straw, the second builds a house of wood, and the third builds a house of bricks. The wolf arrives at each of the first two houses, and because they are built of weaker materials, blows them down.

      It is a very popular play with teachers and students. Its familiarity and subsequent predictability prove to be an excellent entry point for students learning a new language, or those beginning this methodology for the first time. LOS TRES CERDOS PEQUEÑOS has pleasant repetition and easy to learn. Students will be able to chime in to the words of the pigs or the wolf, even upon first presentation, if encouraged to do so. The vocabulary is predictable, as students come to the storyline in French with a context and background from the English version — a definite plus when trying to put students at ease, and this will help them to learn new vocabulary quickly.
