The story: “Once upon a time, there was a little girl named Goldilocks.  She  went for a walk in the forest.  Pretty soon, she came upon a house.  She knocked and, when no one answered, she walked right in.

At the table in the kitchen, there were three bowls of porridge. Goldilocks was hungry.  She tasted the porridge from the first bowl.

“This porridge is too hot!” she exclaimed.

So, she tasted the porridge from the second bowl.

“This porridge is too cold,” she said

So, she tasted the last bowl of porridge.

“Ahhh, this porridge is just right,” she said happily and she ate it all up.

After she’d eaten the three bears’ breakfasts she decided she was feeling a little tired.  So, she walked into the living room where she saw three chairs.  Goldilocks sat in the first chair to rest her feet. 

“This chair is too big!” she exclaimed.

So she sat in the second chair.

“This chair is too big, too!”  she whined.

So she tried the last and smallest chair.

“Ahhh, this chair is just right,” she sighed.  But just as she settled down into the chair to rest, it broke into pieces!

Goldilocks was very tired by this time, so she went upstairs to the bedroom.  She lay down in the first bed, but it was too hard.  Then she lay in the second bed, but it was too soft.  Then she lay down in the third bed and it was just right.  Goldilocks fell asleep.

As she was sleeping, the three bears came home.

“Someone’s been eating my porridge,” growled the Daddy bear.

“Someone’s been eating my porridge,” said the Mummy bear.

“Someone’s been eating my porridge and they ate it all up!” cried the Baby bear.

“Someone’s been sitting in my chair,” growled the Daddy bear.

“Someone’s been sitting in my chair,” said the Mummy bear.

“Someone’s been sitting in my chair and they’ve broken it all to pieces,” cried the Baby bear.

They decided to look around some more and when they got upstairs to the bedroom, Daddy bear growled, “Someone’s been sleeping in my bed,”

“Someone’s been sleeping in my bed, too” said the Mummy bear

“Someone’s been sleeping in my bed and she’s still there!” exclaimed Baby bear.

Just then, Goldilocks woke up and saw the three bears.  She screamed, “Help!”  And she jumped up and ran out of the room.  Goldilocks ran down the stairs, opened the door, and ran away into the forest.  And she never returned to the home of the three bears.”

One thought on “Storytelling – Goldilocks and the three bears

  1. Hi! ^_^
    I am interested in your video very much! I want to share my thoughts about your video.
    After watching this video, I have to say that your lesson is pretty good. You did very well in both teacher and student roles.
    The way the teacher started the story was not boring such as ” today, we’ll make friends…” that made kids more curious about the story. Besides, While telling the story, teacher did very well with her voice, her body language, and also her method. She always changed her voice with intonation in order to suitable to each characters’voice. She have explained clearly and about this story for the students and teach new words by pictures. I really like the way she used body language to express some new words like “cold”, ”tired”,”big” and “broke” because it is very interesting and understandable for kids. Furthermore, she also used chants to help the student remember some simple sentences from the story. That’s very creative. All of the pictures in the story were colorful that attracted kids a lot. The atmosphere of the class was really friendly. Finally,the teacher also reviewed the story by asking the kid to put the pictures in order.
    However, in my pinion, while telling story, you should use more the interaction between student and teacher. I mean the interaction in the first times of telling in your lesson. You can ask student imitate what the characters say and do while telling. It will be easy for kid to image the content of the story. And you didn’t need to tell it again. Then you can save time to organize other activities.
    I sure that i can lean a lot of thing from all of you. Let’s become a creative teacher and make your students excited with the story in your own way. Good luck!
    Thank you so much!
