Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Submit your bear ideas!!

In a little house deep in the green woods lived a family of three happy bears. One morning the three bears went for a walk. Just then a lovely little girl named Goldilocks snuck into the three bears' house. Goldilocks tasted Papa's bowl of porridge. It was too hot! Mama Bear's was too cool. But the little bowl of porridge was just right! Next Goldilocks sat in the bears' three chairs. Papa's chair was too low. Mama's chair was way too high. But the little chair was just right! Uh-oh! The little chair collapsed into pieces! So Goldilocks went for a nap. Papa's bed was too hard. Mama's felt too soft, but the little bed was just right! Just then the three bears returned from their morning stroll. "Who's eaten all my porridge?" cried Baby Bear. "Who's been sitting in our chairs?" grumped Papa Bear. "Who's broken my chair?" yelled Baby Bear. Then he shrieked, "Who's that sleeping in my bed?" Goldilocks woke up with a start. Lickety-split, the lively little girl leapt from Baby Bear's bed. She ran out the door and into the green woods. What became of Goldilocks? The three bears never knew!

Goldilocks' Activities

1. Ask questions to help child continue the story: what would happen if Goldilocks found something else in the house? What do you think happened to her after she left the house?
2. Let your child tell you what he knows about where bears really live, what they really eat, and how they really sleep. Collect books and photos to extend their knowledge. Talk about other animals that might visit a real bear's home. What might happen?
3. Your child can collect objects, sorting them from large to small, and then go in reverse.
4. After reading Goldilocks...Have the children come up with an apology letter letting the bears know she is sorry for coming into their house. The teacher writes the letter while the children give her the ideas.
Idea from Melissa--thanks!
5. Read this fabulous story with your kids. It will make you and them laugh. Then make a Venn Diagram comparing the original version. The book is called: Goldilocks and the Three Hares by Heidi Petach.
Jessica submitted this idea--thanks!



I was given this wonderful Goldilocks picture to use on this page by a very talented cartoonist, Brian Greiner!! Thanks so much, Brian!
