We’ve been learning about fables and fairytales so for this week’s literacy snack idea, we’re reading, The True Story Of The 3 Little Pigs, by Jon Scieszka.
This fractured fairytale, it gives The Big Bad Wolf’s perspective of what really happened. After learning the normal story of the Three Little Pigs this week, this story just makes the students laugh.
For this week’s snack to go along with our book, we’ll be having a snack mix made of the building materials the pigs used to build their homes.
THIS ACTIVITY WORKS WELL WITH
A bag of veggie sticks
A bag of pretzel sticks
A box of Chex cereal
This is a quick make-ahead snack today. Just toss all three ingredients in a large bowl and give each student a handful of building material snack mix on a napkin. Let them explore with the “materials” before snacking on them, giving them a chance to create houses of their own.
While the students are enjoying their snack mix, I made a free printable for them to work on. They will get to draw the three little pigs houses from the story.

Some of the other activities the students have been loving during our fairytale unit are these Fable and Fairytale Sequencing Activities.
I hope your students enjoy their three little pigs snack mix!
See you next time!
