These are an entertaining, organized way for you class to explore the story elements of several favorite versions of this classic fairy tale. I intentionally created it to be meaningful, but not take up tons of time for younger writers
(for example, kids fill in the blanks on some parts instead of writing the entire thing).
All of this has been created for, tested, and loved in my real-life Kindergarten classroom.
Other happy teachers have said: ❤️"My 1st graders LOVED this! They couldn't wait each day to do the next story!"
There are pages for 13 different story variations included
so you are free to do them all OR choose your favorites:
⭐Goldilocks and the Three Bears
⭐The Three Snow Bears
⭐Goldilocks and the Three Libearians
⭐Goatilocks and the Three Bears
⭐Me and You
⭐Somebody and the Three Blairs
⭐Dusty Locks and the Three Bears
⭐Goldilocks and the Three Martians
⭐Rubia and the Three Osos
⭐Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs
⭐Tackylocks and the Three Bears
⭐Goldilocks and Just One Bear
I like to choose my top five and have kids write about one story per day for a week (and then also read more just for fun).
If you are having trouble finding any of these books in your library, I’ve definitely seen videos of them all being read aloud on YouTube so they’d be easy
to search for in a pinch. ☺
Once you’ve come up with your plan, make copies of the journals for the kids with the pages you want. I always run them double sided to save paper. We do a page a day. I keep them safe all week long and then let kids bring them home on Friday.
On each page, you’ll find:
a spot for kids to give their opinion of the book
a list of characters with a few more blanks to complete
space to discuss the setting
kids check boxes to indicate what went wrong... did she go in their house? Eat their food? Break their furniture? Sleep in their beds?
a space to say if the characters felt happy or mad at the end and write more about what happened
Thanks for looking!
