Goldie Socks: And the Three Libearians by Jackie Mims HopkinsIm not sure why its Goldie Socks instead of Goldie Locks? Its not like she was illustrated without blonde hair. Im not sure why the bears had to comment about their missing books twice. Why did she go through six books instead of three, its very confusing. And lastly, Im not sure why these fairy tale re-tellings eliminate the moral of the story. The lesson of Goldie Locks if that you shouldnt go into strangers house and sample and touch things that are not yours. With this retelling, it gives the opposite message that its okay to do all these things in someone elses house. I think it would have been better if the setting was in an actual library and she was finding something that felt just right. (view spoiler)[Goldie goes into the bears house and goes through their books and reclining chairs and decides on what feels just right for her. (hide spoiler)] The illustrations are nice and childish.

Post a Comment. Pages Home. My second grade son last school year participated in this library lesson. He said it cracked him up and I had to do it again for this next bunch of second graders for their library orientation. His favorite part was me preparing to read the story in the chairs that were too big and too small and putting on socks that were also too big and too small. If you are going to do this lesson, be sure and have fun with it by over dramatizing and making your students smile!

I really don't want to become the book patrol and force each kid to read out of their books, just so that I can ensure that they have a good fit. I want the kids to choose just the right book independently. I have scoured the Internet for ideas.
Read various versions of this classic story. Have fun comparing these fractured fairy tales.
Students love the story of Goldilocks and her three bears. By taking the old, familiar classic and giving your readers Goldilocks fractured fairy tales, you can break down the meaning of the story and discuss literary devices. Way out West live three bears who like to keep their cabin neat and tidy. Goldilocks and Little Red Riding Hood have already marked it on their calendars. Junior Bear is missing and the police officer sent to investigate looks oddly familiar to Tiny and his parents, Grandma and Grandpa Bear. When Officer Goldie is sent to the local hotel to check out a break-in, she makes an interesting connection between her two cases.
Deep in an enchanted forest, a little girl named Goldie Socks finds a storybook cottage. When she peeks inside, she finds shelves and shelves filled with books. As she searches for one that is just right, and a comfy place to read it, Mama, Papa, and Baby Libearian discover someone has been in their house! Students will love this fractured fairy tale that has Goldie Socks searching for a story that is just right. The corresponding library lessons offer activities and ideas for teaching the five finger rule and other book selection tools. I thought this was one of the best books I have read about book choice. I have a first grade classroom and it was perfect for a mini lesson for readers workshop!
