Story Time – Goldilocks Measures Things

10:30 am ONLINE on Facebook – ages 2 to 5

This week for story time we had a special guest – Goldilocks! Goldilocks loves to measure things. We learned how to use different units of measurement to see whether things are small, medium, or large.

Early Literacy Tip and Activity:


Learning through play is relaxed, fun & creative. Through a single enjoyable activity. you child can learn about following directions, taking turns, and showing appreciation to others, all skills that are necessary for healthy development.

- Lambert


Recite the “Hickory, Dickory, Dare,” rhyme while holding a small, stuffed bear or a beanbag. Throw the bear up in the air and catch it. Then give your child a chance to toss the bear. Very young children might need a parent to guide their hands as they toss the animal. Make sure to clap and congratulate her efforts. This is a great family activity where everyone can clap for and encourage each other.

The baby bear always cried a lot.
