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 booklet, as this "print & go" activity is quick, easy & super-fun.
"My students and I loved this project! We did the sequencing as a whole group, and then my students did it on their own. They were so engaged throughout each step!"
The bowl flips up to reveal pages that will help students practice the "sequence & retell a story” standards for the “Goldilocks & the 3 Bears” fairy tale.
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 to share.
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.
"My kindergarten kids loved this activity. They had so much fun retelling the fairy tale with the books they created."
