Goldilocks, Three Bears and Four Kindergarten Students!

Reader's Workshop included an exciting "Reader's Theater" segment, "Goldilocks and the Three Bears." Students have heard this story a few times in the past two weeks and were more than ready to put on a play. The book is a "Star Book" and just like "The Three Billy Goats Gruff" and "Caps for Sale", it turned into a class favorite by reading these books to the students at different times during the day. Now, children can look at the pictures and retell the story and it sounds like they are reading it. This pre-emergent reading skill is a wonderful way to get children excited about being able to pick up a book and "read" it with confidence. Goldilocks and the Three Bears is now added to our list of classroom favorites and will be retold many times during Literacy Stations via Reader's Theater. Look for this book to come home in your child's "Book in a Bag" and be prepared for a real treat..."Someone has been eating my porridge..."

I like the way Joey uses different voices and tones when he "reads" Three Billy Goats Gruff and Goldilocks. He feels confident that he is now becoming a real reader!

Grace loves coming home each day and reading her book in the bag and telling us the story. She is becoming a real reader and is so happy about it! Thanks for making each day of class so enjoyable for her! You guys ROCK!
