Do you read the story ”Three Billy Goats Gruff”
It’s an old-fashioned favorite of mine, and perfect for practicing the “sequencing and retelling a story”
With that in mind, I designed this quick, easy and fun ”Billy Goats Gruff” “flip-up”
booklet, which will help your students retell
the story in the proper order.
There are 2 “print & go”
booklet options to choose from: one featuring a troll
, the other a goat
Pick your favorite, or give students a choice
There are full color
patterns so that you can quickly & easily make an example to share, plus black & white
templates, so students can make their own.
Children color, cut & collate
their pages, then add the cover.
When everyone is done, practice retelling the fairy tale "Three Billy Goats Gruff”
by calling on a child, who explains what is happening in that graphic. You could also ask, “Is this the beginning-middle-or end of the story?”
Afterwards, for more reinforcement, have students pick a partner
and take turns sharing their booklet with each other. Sometimes we do this with our older, reading buddies
To check comprehension
, & reinforce the “sequencing a story” standards further, I’ve also included a “color, cut & glue” sequencing worksheet
. There are two options
There’s also several “Here’s What Happened…”
writing prompt worksheets, as another way to check comprehension, plus practice sequential writing, hopefully using a variety of ordinal numbers and other transitions.
You can use the colorful templates to do this as a whole group
activity with younger folks.
I also thought it would be fun for students, to add a caption
inside a speech bubble, that’s above a “color me” picture of the troll falling off the bridge or being swept away in the river.
Completed worksheets make a cute bulletin board
, while providing some fun writing practice
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a fun time “flipping & flapping”, as you practice sequencing & retelling “Three Billy Goats Gruff”
