At play with Goldilocks and the Three Bears

by Deborah J. Stewart, M.Ed. on September 8, 2010

in Fairy Tales, The Value of Play

The children read the fairy tale “Goldilocks and the Three Bears” along with their teacher and then extended the Fairy Tale into their play…

The teacher set out a set of puppets, some pretend porridge, and a few spoons for the children to explore…

The children spent time stirring and scooping with the spoon and with the puppets…

This was a simple activity that invited some dramatic play, communication, and imagination…

And I heard a few giggles as well!

Love the porridge and they are cute puppets.

Dadda couldn’t believe it when he asked Princess about the Golbilocks story and she recited the whole thing to him. We worked out between us who Dadda, Nana, Princess and myself were, but then we had a problem. Princess doesn’t like porridge! And, now I think about it, I’ve never seen Dadda eat it either!
