Goldilocks FUN!!

This week we will be reading the many versions of Goldilocks andthe Three Bears!  For Common Core we have to read/ discuss books that have different versions.  This will allow the students to recall, compare, and discuss those stories.  I created this Goldilocks Unit to practice all of those skills!!  I also included a list of books that can be used.  However I’m sure there are many other versions you could include.  We started reading one book today and the students LOVED it!!  They completed several of the activities included in my Goldilocks Unit on TPT!!  Here is a closer look at what is included:

Here is a look at the other books we will be using!!

Sleeping Synonyms

This activity was PERFECT!!  I went through the books and found many common synonyms in the book: leap, jump; wee, small; house, cottage. The students loved it!!  They also tried to generate a new synonym if they could!!    This was the FUN part!!

Bear Syllables

I have two levels of this activity in the pack.  I included words I found in the books.  The students write the word and color one syllable for each sound.

Story Structure
Today we practice Story Structure; the students recalled the characters, setting, problem, and the solution. They needed to answer each part as a SENTENCE!! If you like these Story Structure pages but you aren’t doing a Goldilocks Unit you can purchase school themed pack HERE!!



I also taught them when the house belongs to more than one bear it becomes the bears' house!!  Check out how Alencia applied that above!!

Did you notice we decided to "nickname" the characters?  PB aka Papa Bear, MB aka Mama Bear, BB aka Baby Bear.  Check out this little girl's work GL -- Goldilocks!!  They crack, me, up!!

Again, you can find all of these activities and more in my Goldilocks Stories pack on TPT!!   I hope you all have a great week!
