Goldilocks and Just One Bear by Leigh Hodgkinson

Recommended Grades:3-5

One minute, a bear is strolling in the woods.  The next, hes lost in the big city!  Its bright and noisy and tiring.  Where can a bear go to take a nap?  A surprise ending makes this a fun fractured fairy tale and a great take on the original fairy tale. 

Lesson Idea:

Mentor Text: Writers Workshop:  Read aloud Goldilocks and Just One Bear as part of a unit writing fractured fairy tales.  Pair it with Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs or The Three Billy Goats Fluff.  Use Goldilocks and Just One Bear as a mentor text to guide students in writing their own fractured fairy tale.  How can they take a traditional tale and tweak it to make it a little different?
