One of the many themes I do with my students is fairy tales
, they absolutely love this genre
No matter what time of year you slip in a fairy tale
or two, I think your students will enjoy making this “flip-the flap” fairy tale
The bowl flips up to reveal pages that will help students practice the "sequence & retell a story”
standards for the “Goldilocks & the 3 Bears”
I purposely did not number the pages, so you can check comprehension
This also allows you to choose less pages for preschool students
, who can easily sort beginning-middle-& end
, then retell the story with a limited number of “picture prompts”
Simply run the Goldilocks pattern off on construction paper or card stock.
Students trim & add color.
For some 3D pop
, have children bend the top of the porridge over, instead of gluing that top section down.
For extra pizzazz & that finishing touch, I also attached a small spoon.
The bowl of porridge tells the tale
, as students color, cut & collate
the “bowl-shaped” pages into a little booklet, which is then glued to the bowl that Goldilocks is holding.
I've included black & white
patterns, as well as colorful
ones, so that you can quickly & easily make an example
When everyone is done, have children pick a partner
and take turns telling the story of “Goldilocks and the 3 Bears”
to each other.
We sometimes do this sort of thing with our older reading buddies
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a fun time flipping and flapping.
