Fairy Tale Three Little Pigs: Fingerplay

Three Little Pigs
Text and Actions by C.K. Emanuel

There are three little houses:
TOUCH FINGERTIPS TOGETHER TO MAKE A HOUSE
Straw, twigs, brick,
COUNT 1, 2, 3 WITH FINGERS
With three little pigs happy and snug.
PALMS TOGETHER WITH BACK OF HAND TOUCHING SIDE OF FACE.

Along creeps a wolf,
CUP HANDS, HAVE THEM “WALK” IN FRONT OF YOU
Who took a great big breath
TOUCH STOMACH AND BREATHE
Whoosh!
CUP HANDS BY MOUTH
Away blew the straw house,
SWEEP HAND AWAY FROM BODY
And one little pig did run!
PUMP ARMS AT SIDES AS IF RUNNING

Now there are two little houses:
SAME ACTIONS AS BEFORE
Twigs and brick
COUNT 1, 2 WITH FINGERS
With three little pigs happy and snug.

Along creeps a wolf
SAME ACTIONS AS BEFORE
Who took a great big breath
Whoosh!
Away blew the twig house,
And two little pigs did run!

Now there is one little house,
Built of bricks
HOLD UP ONE FINGER
With three little pigs happy and snug.

Along creeps a wolf
Who took a great big breath
Swoosh!
The house stood strong
FLEX ARMS AT EITHER SIDE OF HEAD
And away went the wolf.
CUP HANDS, HAVE THEM “WALK” IN FRONT OF YOU
