Somethinglocks and the three somethings

on May 16, 2013

I know this is a story about a little girl who goes into the woods and finds a house where three things live, and she eats their food, but I don’t think I remember it all quite right. So you might have to help me if I mess up.

Once there was a girl named Brownielocks, and she went to the house of the three dinosaurs.

…oh, it wasn’t Brownielocks? Or dinosaurs? Ooops! I think I remember now.

Baldielocks was skipping through the woods when she came to the home of the three clowns…

oh, I’ve gotten it wrong again. Who was it? Goldielocks! And the 3 bears? okay, I think we’re on the right track now!

There was a papa bear, a momma bear, and a baby bear, and they went for a walk in the woods.

So Goldilocks came inside and ate the cookies the bears left for their breakfast.

…oh, not cookies? Oh yeah! It was a big plate of spaghetti!

Porridge? That’s right! Three bowls of porridge. The first bowl was too moldy. Oh, Cold! The second bowl was too spicy. Hot? I meant hot. And the third bowl was…? Just right! Of course. And she ate it all up!

Then she wanted to sit down for a while, so she went to the garage where the bears kept their car.

…oh, that isn’t right? Was it the hen house?

Oh yeah, I remember! She went to the living room and sat on chairs!

The first chair was too…? Hard. You are so smart! What about the second chair? It was too soft, and the third chair? Just right! …but it broke? Oh no!

That’s okay though, because Goldilocks was getting sleepy, so she went to take a nap on the giant chicken.

Not a chicken? Are you sure? I guess beds do make more sense. The first bed was too…? Hard, and the second bed too…? Comfy! And the third bed? Just right! Well that’s nice, and Goldilocks fell fast asleep.

Then the three bears came home, they found the porridge (baby bear said ‘Good! I don’t like porridge anyway!’ …oh he didn’t? She ate it all up! Goodnesss!) They found the three chairs (baby bear said, ‘yea, now I can jump on my chair!’ …no? Oh, he was sad! Poor baby bear.) And they found the three beds (Baby bear said ‘Horray! A new stuffed animal!’ …someone was sleeping in my bed, and here she is? Yeah, that’s how it goes!)

And Goldilocks never went into a strangers house again!

Thanks for helping me! You sure know your stories. =)

The kids loved helping me get this right, and playing with the pieces after the storytime was over. I created the Goldilocks pieces for this, and just pulled random stuff from flannel boards I already had for the rest!
