Tale:“Goldilocks” was first written down by British poet Robert Southey in the early 1800s. Its actions include dangerous choices. As a class, we will talk about Goldilocks’ choices and decide on a way to dramatize the story that recognizes those risks.

Class Description: Using socks, yarn and fabric pieces, children will create puppet characters to represent a child, a parent and three (or more) bears. They will also decorate the “props” for the Goldilocks story, including bowls, chairs and beds. As Margaret Moody (teacher) narrates the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, she will invite children to act out some of the scenes with their own puppets. “Puppet Tales” emphasizes the fun of dramatic play and its power to bring a group together.


About the Facilitator:  Margaret Moody performs folk and fantasy stories with hand puppets. She studied traditional Chang Chung Hsi puppetry in Taiwan and loves to include its acrobatic moves in her shows as a solos artist and with Galapagos Puppets.
