After the children have heard the story Three Billy Goats Gruff do a story theater with the children. Have three children as the goats and one child as the troll. Teacher is the narrator. Reread the story and as teacher is reading the story children are participating in acting it out.

For a small group project we sat out craft sticks and had the children recall the story by using the craft stick and markers.
To enhance the learning experience about the three billy goats we added items to other areas in the classroom so that the children would have opportunities to retell the story while at play in the learning centers.
We included prop items in the block area along with the book.
Puppets and book and in the puppet theater.
Word cards in the writing center so that they would have the opportunity to write their own billy goat story.
Children created their own goats using paper tubs, yard, pipe cleaners and scrap paper.
