This book would be amazing for kids in the 2nd or 3rd grade who have heard all these fairy tales. It is a fun and interesting read for kids.

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.

This book would probably be easier for 2nd graders and up to understand it well. It took me a second to understand it.

The Three Pigs by David Wiesner, 2001. Caldecott Award Winning Book. This is a twist of the classic the three little pigs book. It takes you on a whole different journey with the pigs then the typical wolf blowing the houses down. The journey is they all live happily ever after together. I think the illustrations of the pigs make this book. PICK

The Three Little Pigs written and illustrated by David Wiesner is a Caldecott Award winner. This is an creative anomaly from the classic story of Three Little Pigs. Instead of being eaten by the big bad wolf, the three little pigs exit the story to a new adventure. This a great book would be great for a RA. #ucflae3414su19

Myiab This book can be used in the classroom by teachers comparing and contrasting the original classic Three Little Pigs with this book. UDL 3.1 ( activate or supply background knowledge) and ESOL 17 (provide contextual support through audio, visuals, models, demonstrations, realia, body language and facial expressions) https://www.rif.org/literacy-central/book/three-pigs 2mo
DrSpalding This is such an interesting variant of the classic tale. Helpful resource. Nice job aligning principles and strategies here. 1mo

The Three Pigs is a Caldecott medal winner & MF, post modern take on the story “the three little pigs”. It is about a wolf who “huffs & puffs” and blows down their homes and they get away and fly to an area with other TL characters & rescue them all from the wolf.

https://www.rif.org/literacy-central/book/three-pigs

This book would best be RA & S

Summerm The UDL principles best for this story would be 3.3 (Guide information processing and visualization) & 1.1 (offer a ways of customizing the display of information) Also, the EL strategies 11 (placelanguage in meaningful context) & 16 (integrate speaking, listening, reading and writing activities). #ucflae3414su19 (edited) 2mo
Summerm 3.3 (by guiding visualization, the teacher can put emotion behind the words and helping the students understand better).

11 (by placing language in meaningful context, it allows the students to really feel the book and keep them interested in what the author wrote.

This book is so clever about pigs climbing into new books. I love the crossovers between stories, too.

I love that this book breaks the lines occasionally. The illustrations cross over the lines and really brings it dimensions.

The Three Pigs, written and illustrated by David Weisner, is a (TL) retelling of a classic story, Three Little Pigs but reinvented. This retelling won a Caldecott Award. The base of the story is still the same with three pigs, a wolf, and trying to escape him with different houses. When the wolf blows down the first two houses, he also blows away the pigs into another dimension.

WoodsKatie - They go to different stories and work together to get back! It‘s an interesting twist! This would be great in K-3 classes as a RA as they connect the similarities and differences. The book also satisfies UDL guidelines 3.1 and 3.2 as well as ESOL strategies 3 and 17. This lesson was not only paired with the book but also has information from the author. https://www.teachingbooks.net/tb.cgi?tid=6772 #LAE3414sp19

The Three Pigs by David Wiesner is such an incredible TL book that puts a new twist on the original tale of The Three Pigs. David Wiesner won the Caldecott Medal for his creative way of telling the story. This story highlights ESOL strategies 1, 3, 4, 10, 13, and UDL principles 9.2, 9.3, 3.1, and 4.1. I love how David has the pigs enter new fairytale worlds through out the story and has the pigs talk through speech bubbles.

karamank I think kids would love his creativity.
A great resource for this story is located on David‘s website: https://www.hmhbooks.com/wiesner/Wiesner_Art_Max_discussion_guide.pdf I love the idea of having students create a story like the way David did in the book by creating their own characters and having them talk through speech bubbles.

karamank I also think it would be a great idea to read students the classic story of The Three Little Pigs and then read them David Wiesner‘s unique version. I would love for students to compare the differences and see how the story is told from two different perspectives. It would make a great RA! #lae3414sp19 (edited) 5mo
sydneydaniels A classic!! A great book to keep in your classroom library. 5mo
DrSpalding This is a very different example of the original story. Point of view is something that can certainly be taught by this book. Excellent resource. 5mo

The Three Pigs is a hilarious TL story, retold by David Wiesner. This story won the Caldecott medal, the pictures really tell the story! It starts out by the wolf huffing and puffing the pigs houses down, but this time the pigs escape together! They leave their tale and end up in different tales! I would use the first part of the book as CR, as it has the transitional take, and for the rest of the book I would do a RA because the students really

giont need to see the pictures. I would also stop and discuss what‘s happening in the illustrations. This book can be used for the lesson plan “Comics in the Classroom as an Introduction to Narrative Structure”. Check it out here: http://www.readwritethink.org/classroom-resources/lesson-plans/comics-classroom-... UDL principles 3.3 (guide information processing and visualization) & 3.1 (Activate 6mo
giont or supply background knowledge) fit with this book and lesson plan. ESOL strategy 17 (provide contextual support through audio visuals, models, demonstrations, realia, body language and facial expressions) would also be appropriate. #LAE3414sp19 6mo
DrSpalding This is an odd version of this particular book. Interesting lesson plan to accompany this one. 5mo

I think the illustrations in this book are super unique. Some pages look like a comic, others look like the pages fell over and some pages have very soft or very bright colors.

It‘s a fairy tale on the three little pigs and the big bad wolf. He destroys the first two pigs houses. Then the pigs get away and start jumping to other books/pages of other stories.
