PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This unit is based on the classic story, Goldilocks and the Three Bears. The bulk of this pack is focused around the balanced literacy approach. It includes the following: read aloud suggestions, comprehension questions, a shared reading original poem and ideas for teaching this poem, and an interactive writing idea focused on point of view {similar to the student activity on point of view listed below}.

Also, included in this unit:

* Write the Room Activity- Students will search for word cards with either /ay/ words or long a/silent e. This activity comes with a recording sheet.

*Retell Story Sticks- Students will color the black and white pictures, cut them out, and glue them on Popsicle sticks. They will then use their story sticks to retell the classic story to a partner, focusing on characters, setting, problem, and solution. This activity also comes with a recording sheet for students to record their retell.

* Point of View Letter Writing- Students will write a letter from one character in the story to another, after reading a non-traditional story teaching students about point of view. Letter paper included.

*Class Character Book- This activity will help students focus on character traits and feelings, as well as point of view and adjectives. Students will collaborate about a character and form analogies based on their brainstorming. You can turn students' writing into a class book- book covers included!

*Graphing Activity- Students will decide if they think they will like porridge or not. You will then give them a sample and have them discuss why they liked it or not. Included: headers to make a class graph, voting chips, individual graph papers, and opinion writing paper.

*Story Scramble- Students will sort cards by picture and then form complete sentences, using the cards with the same picture. Once they have put all of their sentences in the correct order, they will write the sentences in a logical order on their retell paper.

** Please note that any version of Goldilocks and the Three Bears will work for these activities. I have suggested certain ones but you can adapt any of the activities to the book you have on hand!

This unit will keep your study of Goldilocks and the Three Bears going for at least a week. All of these activities have been completed by my first grade students and they loved them! :) All activities are aligned with the first grade common core as well!
