Braille books, audio books, and large print books can be used for students who are blind or have vision issues.

Videos of the books being read aloud can be shown for students who need more visuals.

You can also use objects to put on a puppet show type to give more of a visual. An example of objects are shown below. Students could read through the book themselves and use the objects to show the story.

Students have the options to do the activities individually or with a partner (multiple means of engagement).

Venn Diagram: Students will make a venn diagram comparing the books The Three Little Pigs by David Wiesner and The True Story of the Three Little Pigs by Jon Sciezka. The students should have three points in each circle. Come back together as a class and make another venn diagram.

Opinion: Do you believe the wolf's story or the pigs' story? Why?

Narrative: If you were a pig, what would you build your house with?


Reader's Theatre:

Students will be grouped in groups of about 7 or 8, depending on the class size. The students will be able to choose what character they want to play, or be assigned a character if too many students want to be one of the characters. Students who do not want to act will have the option of being set and costume designers. The students will practice their scripts for a few days or when you feel the students are prepared. Students will perform their skits for their classmates, friends, and even their parents. This will allow students to become part of the story and share that with others.
