One way we can see if our child is comprehending the text is by asking the simple question, “Can you tell me what happened in the story?” While this isn’t always the most exciting way to recall details and engage with a story, it is certainly a valuable and important skill.

For that reason, this preschool lesson will focus on sequencing The Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf. This will engage your child in recalling details as well as using vocabulary terms such as first second and third, and last.
