Book Talk Thursday - Folktales Part 2

In last week's Book Talk, I shared some of the books I use to teach folktales. Instead of sharing new books this week, I wanted to share how we're using different versions of Goldilocks and the Three Bears in our class!

Each student received a copy of this chart, which you can download here or click the picture! I made an anchor chart with all of the same information. Each day, we've read a different version of the story, and then filled in the chart. My students will glue their finished chart into their Reader's Notebook.
I love that for the moral, my students wrote what was most meaningful to them! Seriously, does it get any better?

This sweet kiddo's birthday was today, and wanted to make sure I shared her work!

Here's what my anchor chart looks like! I totally forgot a space for solution, but it worked out ok, because I wouldn't have had enough room. Oh well. Such is life.

On Friday, students will choose two of the four versions to compare and contrast! I can't wait to hear their conversations, and see which version they liked best!

Happy Teaching!


  1. Love it! Thanks for sharing. I'm pinning this for later use! :) What do you use for readers notebooks and how often do you use them?

    1. Thank you, Tara! My reader's notebooks change a little each year. This year, we're using composition books. My students use them daily (or should be). I have different sections for different purposes! I think you might have given me an idea for post :)
