Every February, the kids at school get to have a Pajama Day. The student council makes breakfast for lunch. So I was inspired to tell a tale about a pancake!
The children liked the story, because it reminded them of The Gingerbread Man. The nice thing about this story, however, is that in the end the pancake decides to let himself be eaten by three children who have nothing else to eat 🙂
It’s a great beginner text for a Story Listening lesson, because of its repetition.
I told my version with a rabbit, a wolf, a bear, and a pig – in part, because they were animals I knew I could draw! Here is the text I used in German, which you can view and download as a PDF: Der dicke fette Pfannkuchen SL 1,2. And here is an English translation of the text I used (PDF): Big, Fat Pancake English translation
