Retelling Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Our first STAR Book was Goldilocks and the Three Bears by James Marshall.  STAR stands for Story Telling And Retelling.  After reading the book each day during the week of August 29 - September 2, our students identified the setting (in the forest), characters (Goldilocks, Papa Bear, Mama Bear, and Baby Bear), and the sequence of events.  Students used six pictures, depicting important events in the story, and laid them out in order to practice retelling the story.  Please encourage your child to retell the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears to your family.

I had my son Bryan retell this story tonight. And he did a great job going in great detail and using different voices and even descriptive words that he has never used before. He is really enjoying your class
