In short, I am busy: Goldilocks

Flannelboards and manipulatives
  • Printed Goldilocks and the three bears flannelboard (see Terri)
Rhymes, songs, and movement
  • Good Ms. Padgett sings The little red hen and other stories (cd)
Crafts
  • Make your own puppets
    • Teddy bear die cut, gingerbread man person shape
    • Popsicle sticks
    • Decorations, tape
  • Fractured fairy tale
    • For readers - pre-print words and have the kids arrange them and write in their own to create a fractured fairy tale (similar to madlibs)
    • For non-readers - cut out photographs, bears, little girls, chairs, etc. and then add in weird stuff. Have the kids arrange them and then "tell" the story. This will work as a flannelboard too.
  • STEM - how heavy?
    • Small cardboard boxes, weights (rocks? books?)
    • Kids stack items on the boxes until they collapse
    • Bonus if you can use a scale to weigh the items
  • STEM - let's compare
    • Collect items to compare - soft vs hard, hot vs cold, etc.
  • Snacks
    • instant oatmeal (porridge); chocolate pudding; teddy grahams
Vocabulary and Concepts
  • Counting
  • Comparison and degrees (hot, warm, cool, cold)
