Adapted from the classic folk tale, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, this was designed as a unique book with puppet characters and teaches size relationships and sequencing of the actions in the story. Our children love to retell this story using the voices of the characters over and over again.
This puppet book, Goldilocks and The Three Bears, is just right!
Included is an emergent reader in which the children write the high frequency words "this" and "is."
We have added a journal about bears with two page formats. One has a place for the children to list 3 facts - great for beginner writers! The other format has writing lines for narrative stories about bears which is perfect for more experienced writers. You will also receive a whole group lesson idea for exploring bears and creating a graphic organizer!
The journal can be purchased separately at Writing About Bears.
This product is also included in our thematic unit, Bears Thematic Unit.
Be sure to check out Going On A Picnic for connecting literature with writing!

How do I use this book in my classroom?
Your students can create their own copy of this book! Included are all the reproducible blackline masters, full directions, and a color photo page showing the completed pages of the book.
The children create a page a day, using the collage technique. The students follow directions to create the illustration out of construction paper. Included are the complete cutting directions for making circles and ovals from squares and rectangles by trimming off the corners. All you do is cut squares and rectangles on your paper cutter for the pages. The rest is up to the children! Very little teacher time for prepping and no patterns or tracers to create!
There is at least one word on each page for the students to write. We sound the word out together as a class and then the children can copy it from the board or try sounding it out themselves.
When we are finished with the book, we use it at our reading station in place of the published books from our reading program before sending the books home. The teacher's copy can be laminated and placed in the class library for the children to read over and over during the year. The children love using their own books and take great pride in them!
