Segue abaixo uma sugestão de perguntas para fazer conforme a leitura do texto:
Way back in Once Upon a Time, I was making a birthday cake for my dear old granny.
- So the wolf was cooking, right? What was he baking? Resposta: A birthday cake.
- Who was he baking the cake for? Resposta: His grandmother.
I had a terrible sneezing cold.
- Hm, the wolf was sick! What did he have? Resposta: A sneezing cold.
I ran out of sugar. So I walked down the street to ask my neighbor for a cup of sugar.
- Okay, so the wolf was baking a cake and ran out of what ingredient? Resposta: Sugar.
- What did he do then? Resposta: He walked down the street to ask a neighbor for a cup of sugar.
Now this neighbor was a pig. And he wasn't too bright either. He had built his whole house out of straw. Can you believe it? I mean who in his right mind would build a house of straw? So of course the minute I knocked on the door, it fell right in. I didn't want to just walk into someone else's house. So I called, "Little Pig, Little Pig, are you in there?" No answer. I was just about to go home without the cup of sugar for my dear old granny's birthday cake.
- Who was the neighbor he first ran into? Resposta: The First Little Pig.
- Why did the wolf say he wasn’t too smart? Resposta: Because his house was made of straw.
- What happened when he knocked on the door? Resposta: The door fell down.
- How did he call the pig? Resposta: “Little Pig, Little Pig, are you in?”
- Did the pig answer? Resposta: No.
That's when my nose started to itch. I felt a sneeze coming on. Well I huffed. And I snuffed. And I sneezed a great sneeze.
And you know what? The whole darn straw house fell down. And right in the middle of the pile of straw was the First Little Pig - dead as a doornail. He had been home the whole time.
- What happened when the wolf was knocking on the pig’s door? Resposta: His nose started to itch.
- What happened when he sneezed? Resposta: The straw house fell down.
- Did the wolf do it on purpose? Resposta: No.
- Is that the same way it happens in the Three Little Pigs’ story? Resposta: No.
- What happened to the pig when the house fell down? Resposta: He died.
It seemed like a shame to leave a perfectly good ham dinner lying there in the straw. So I ate it up. Think of it as a cheeseburger just lying there.
- What did the wolf do when he saw the dead pig? Resposta: He ate it.
- If it was a cheeseburger, would you have eaten it? (Open answer).
I was feeling a little better. But I still didn't have my cup of sugar . So I went to the next neighbor's house. This neighbor was the First Little Pig's brother. He was a little smarter, but not much. He had built his house of sticks. I rang the bell on the stick house. Nobody answered. I called, "Mr. Pig, Mr. Pig, are you in?" He yelled back."Go away wolf. You can't come in. I'm shaving the hairs on my chinny chin chin."
- So, the wolf went into the second house. Who lived there? Resposta: The First Pig’s brother.
- What was his house made of? Resposta: Sticks.
- Was the Second Pig home? Resposta: Yes.
- Did he let the wolf in? Resposta: No.
- What did he say to the wolf? Resposta: “Go away wolf. You can’t come in. I’m shaving the hairs on my chinny chin chin”.
I had just grabbed the doorknob when I felt another sneeze coming on. I huffed. And I snuffed. And I tried to cover my mouth, but I sneezed a great sneeze.
And you are not going to believe this, but the guy's house fell down just like his brother's. When the dust cleared, there was the Second Little Pig - dead as a doornail. Wolf's honor. Now you know food will spoil if you just leave it out in the open. So I did the only thing there was to do. I had dinner again. Think of it as a second helping.
- What happened when he arrived at the Second Little Pig’s house? Resposta: He felt another sneeze coming on.
- What happened to the house after he sneezed? Resposta: It also feel down.
- What happened to the Second Little Pig? Resposta: He died as well.
- What did the wolf do then? Resposta: He ate him.
I was getting awfully full. But my cold was feeling a little better. And I still didn't have that cup of sugar for my dear old granny's birthday cake. So I went to the next house. This guy was the First and Second Little Pig's brother. He must have been the brains of the family. He had built his house of bricks. I knocked on the brick house. No answer. I called, "Mr Pig, Mr. Pig, are you in?" And do you know what that rude little porker answered? "Get out of here, Wolf. Don't bother me again."
Talk about impolite! He probably had a whole sackful of sugar. And he wouldn't give me even one little cup for my dear sweet old granny's birthday cake. What a pig!
- Where did the wolf go to get sugar? Resposta: He went to the Third Little Pig’s house.
- What was the house made of? Resposta: Bricks.
- Was the Third Little Pig home? Resposta: Yes.
- What did he say to the wolf when he knocked? Resposta: “Get out of here, Wolf. Don’t bother me again”.
- Did the wolf think it was nice? Resposta: No, he thought it was impolite.
I was just about to go home and maybe make a nice birthday card instead of a cake, when I felt my cold coming on. I huffed And I snuffed. And I sneezed once again.
Then the Third Little Pig yelled, " And your old granny can sit on a pin!" Now I'm usually a pretty calm fellow. But when somebody talks about my granny like that, I go a Little crazy. When the cops drove up, of course I was trying to break down this Pig's door. And the whole time I was huffing and puffing and sneezing and making a real scene.
- Did the wolf sneeze again? Resposta: Yes.
- Did the house fall down? Resposta: No.
- What did the pig say to the wolf that made him angry? Resposta: He said “your old granny can sit on a pin!”
- What happened when the pig said that? Resposta: The wolf got mad and tried to break down the Pig’s door.
- Who called the police? Resposta: The pig.
- What happened when the police arrived? Resposta: They saw the wolf huffing and puffing and sneezing and making a real scene.
- Was the wolf arrested? Resposta: Yes.
The rest as they say is history.
The news reporters found out about the two pigs I had for dinner. They figured a sick guy going to borrow a cup of sugar didn't sound very exciting.
So they jazzed up the story with all of that "Huff and puff and blow your house down"
And they made me the Big Bad Wolf. That's it The real story. I was framed. "
- What happened when the reporters discovered the story? Resposta: They jazzed up the story to make it more interesting.
