Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding And This Book Was Just Right...Using the Story of the Three Bears to Pick Out Books - Section 3: Procedure


In the case of this lesson, the children loved the retelling of a classic fairytale and wanted to do more after hearing Goldilocks and the Three Bears.  After the lesson about choosing best-fit books, the children wanted to act out the story.  I divided the class into groups of four and they made headbands to portray the four characters of Papa, Mama, Baby Bear and Goldilocks.  It was not what I had planned but ended up as a rewarding experience, and what was generated by the students solidified my best-fit lesson.
