Use this classic tale to teach sequencing, retelling, and ordinal numbers!
This cute puppet book allows the children to be actively involved in recreating this classic story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff. The children create the puppets and the stage with a stand-up bridge for retelling their story. The predictable pattern makes it easy for the children to "read" this book.
Included are two non-fiction journals for writing about goats and bridges. Each journal has two sets of pages for beginner and experienced writers. Click here to read more about I Can Write About Goats and Bridges which can be purchased separately.
There are two whole group activities included in this journal. Help your students learn about goats and bridges with our activity called Getting To Know… The children explore goat and/or bridge books in small groups, and the class comes together with their new knowledge to create a graphic organizer about them. We also explain how to challenge your students by having them create bridges with classroom building materials - a favorite of our children!
How do I use this book in my classroom?
Your students can create their own copy of this book! Included are all the reproducible blackline masters, full directions, and a color photo page showing the completed pages of the book.
The children create a page a day and a goat a day, using the collage technique. The students follow directions to create the illustration out of construction paper. Included are the complete cutting directions for making circles and ovals from squares and rectangles by trimming off the corners. All you do is cut squares and rectangles on your paper cutter for the pages. The rest is up to the children! Very little teacher time for prepping and no patterns or tracers to create!
There is at least one word on each page for the students to write. We sound the word out together as a class and then the children can copy it from the board or try sounding it out themselves.
When we are finished with the book, we use it at our reading station in place of the published books from our reading program. The children love using their own books and take great pride in them!
