Once upon a time there were three pigs. Their mother sent them out to the world to make their way in it.
The first pig bought some straw and was able to build his house very (quick/quickly) with (so/such) light material. The second pig bought (a/some) wood and built his house quite quickly with the wood. The (three/third) pig bought some bricks and built his house with (it/them). But building his house took longer.
The first two pigs (have/had) finished their houses and thought the third pig was foolish for all the work he gave himself to do. But along the way, he finished (build/building) his house (to/too/two).
(Part Two) One day, (a/the/no article) wolf came to the first pig’s house and said, “Little Pig, let me in.”
The first pig answered, “No, Wolf. I won’t let you in.”
So, the wolf huffed, and he puffed, and he (blow/blew/blews) the house in. The first pig ran (no preposition/at/to) the second pig’s wood house.
The wolf came to the second pig’s house and said, “Little Pig, let me in.”
The second pig answered, “No, Wolf. I won’t let (him/you) in.”
So, the wolf huffed, and he puffed, and he blew the house in. The two pigs ran to the third(pigs/pig’s/pigs’) brick house.
(Part Three) The third pig let the other two pigs in. The wolf came to the third pig’s house and(say/says/said), “Little Pig, let me in.”
The third pig answered, “(No Wolf/No, Wolf). I won’t let you in.”
So, the wolf huffed, and he puffed, but he wasn’t able to (blow/blew) the house in. The three pigs were safe in the brick house.
The moral of the story is that hard work and dedication pay off.
