Do you read the story ”Three Billy Goats Gruff”?

It’s an old-fashioned favorite of mine, and perfect for practicing the “sequencing and retelling a story” standards.

With that in mind, I designed this quick, easy and fun ”Billy Goats Gruff” “flip-up” booklet, which will help your students retell the story in the proper order.

There are 2 “print & go” booklet options to choose from: one featuring a troll, the other a goat.

Pick your favorite, or give students a choice.

There are full color patterns so that you can quickly & easily make an example to share, plus black & white templates, so students can make their own.

Children color, cut & collate their pages, then add the cover.

When everyone is done, practice retelling the fairy tale "Three Billy Goats Gruff” by calling on a child, who explains what is happening in that graphic. You could also ask, “Is this the beginning-middle-or end of the story?”

Afterwards, for more reinforcement, have students pick a partner and take turns sharing their booklet with each other. Sometimes we do this with our older, reading buddies.

To check comprehension, & reinforce the “sequencing a story” standards further, I’ve also included a “color, cut & glue” sequencing worksheet. There are two options.

There’s also several “Here’s What Happened…” writing prompt worksheets, as another way to check comprehension, plus practice sequential writing, hopefully using a variety of ordinal numbers and other transitions.

You can use the colorful templates to do this as a whole group activity with younger folks.

I also thought it would be fun for students, to add a caption inside a speech bubble, that’s above a “color me” picture of the troll falling off the bridge or being swept away in the river.

Completed worksheets make a cute bulletin board, while providing some fun writing practice.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a fun time “flipping & flapping”, as you practice sequencing & retelling “Three Billy Goats Gruff”.
