Begin to introduce the names of the shapes. Can you find any cylinders, cubes, cuboids and spheres in your home?
Why are the cubes and cuboids good for building with?
Activity: Provide a variety of empty boxes, tubes, lids etc. Ask your child to make a model for a particular purpose. E.g. Build a bridge for the 3 Billy Goats or a house for one of the Three Little Pigs.
Encourage them to tell you about their model and begin to discuss the properties of the shapes.
Look at the cover of the book. What do you think the story is about? Does it remind you of another story?

Have you changed your mind about who the villain is in this story? What do we know about the wolf so far? What does he look like? How does he behave?
Activity: Draw or paint the wolf from this version or you could make a wolf – See Expressive Arts and Design. Around your picture write words to describe him, for example, big ears or sharp teeth.
