Goldie Socks & Goldilocks & 3 Bears. . . and Dinosaurs!

With our second graders, we've been spending some time talking about different Goldilocks stories as we work on the Core standard RL.2.9: Compare and contrast two or more versions of the same story (e.g., Cinderella stories) by different authors or from different cultures.

We began with Goldie Socks and the Three Libearians by Jackie Mims Hopkins.

We even have our own "gold-y socks" to wear with this lesson! :)

This book also gives us the opportunity to talk with students about Just Right books, and they completed a ticket out the door to tell us about the Just Right book they just checked out.

When we came back to the lesson on the next cycle, students listened to two more Goldilocks stories--Goldilocks and the Three Bears by James Marshall and Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs by Mo Willems.

Students reviewed how to complete a Venn diagram, and then they completed a Venn diagram--either of their own or as a full class--to compare and contrast any two of the Goldie Socks/Goldilocks stories.
