Goldilocks and the Three Bears: Activities

My kids and I love to read, and love to play pretend.  Playing pretend with the stories was a great way to check to the kiddos comprehension.  Our recent reading dramatization was with the adaptation of Goldilocks and the Three bears, by Steven Guarnaccia.  One of the things I liked about this version is that it was gender-neutral.  It discussed the bears by size, not with titles of “Papa” or “Mama”.  This made the book great for my younger preschoolers who are learning to differentiate between opposites and to describe things that they interact with.


Here are a few of the activities we did in our pretend play to help make the fairy tale come to life:

1)  Find a Big Bear, Medium Bear and a Baby-sized Bear.  Thankfully, we have a Grammy who has given us a wide assortment of bears to choose from.

2)  Match a bear to a kid.  We have a little preschooler, a bigger preschooler and a biggest preschooler.

3)  Go on a hunt for the biggest cup (for the porridge), the smallest cup, etc.
