Fairy Tale Futures

We started our Fairy Tale Unit this week. One of our first stories was Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Using their icon for Over Time, I asked the kids to write about Goldilocks in the Present (as she was in the story) and then to think about what she would become in the future. What would Goldilocks study in college? What profession would she choose and why.

I really liked what some of them came up with:

Made the prediction that the bears will come ruin Goldilocks' things in her house when she grows up.

A pet keeper

Doctor so she could check to see if they're sick.

Builds shelters (maybe she'll put in better security systems).

A doctor-to learn the rules.

My mom always had a theory about those kids who were "bad" when they were little. Either they'd end up in jail or as a police officer.
