Right before the break, Jackson second graders analyzed story elements in Jan Brett’s The Three Snow Bears and created their own snow bear puppet. During the story, the kids used the pictures and poster to put the story elements in their places. Then during check out, the kids created their polar bear puppet. They used them to retell their favorite parts of the story. We watched the read-aloud video at the end of the lesson. The kids enjoyed this twist on Goldilocks!
