The Three Little Pigs (finger puppet play for young children)

Hello Parents and Teachers .I wrote this extra simple mini play for a class of 4-8 year old Italian students. I tried to make it very short, simple and comprehensive for both children learning English as a second language or very young children who are still unable to memorize long pieces of dialogue. I also used finger puppets and got the children to make simple prop houses made out of cardboard, sticks and straw. I hope you find this post useful and I would love to hear any feedback
