My boys have been enjoying the Three Billy Goats Gruff story for several months, so I decided I would turn it into a fun lesson plan! I love making preschool lesson plans based on books, so naturally any books that my kids are interested in make great candidates. I always keep the worksheets fairly minimal and add in lots of fun activities and “challenges” for my kids! Let’s jump into what’s included in our Three Billy Goats Gruff lesson plans for preschool and kindergarten!
Three Billy Goats Gruff Lesson Plans
Three Billy Goats Gruff Printables
Our lesson plans always include a one week detailed lesson plan with activities for each day. If you want to take a peek at how to make preschool lesson plans, you will understand that I follow the same formula for all of my preschool and kindergarten lesson plans.
This pack also includes ABC cards, a printable “The Three Goats Song,” G and T do-a-dot pages, G and T tracing pages, a sequencing puzzle, book list, supply list, and more!
My children absolutely love do-a-dot pages, and they are great for fine motor skills, so I always include them in my lesson plan packs.
Older preschoolers and kindergartners can work on letter writing with the letter tracing pages.
Three Billy Goats Gruff Printable Characters
You’ll also find printable characters. I have included instructions on how to create a simple sensory bin, and have “biggest,” “middle-sized,” and “smallest,” goat printables. There are also plain printable characters to be used as finger puppets or with a felt board. The G Alphabet cards in this picture are included in our ABC Flashcard Pack.
Three Billy Goats Gruff Activities
We have several fun planned Three Billy Goats Gruff activities. Art and life skills projects include bridge painting, mask making, and a yummy and easy troll snack. Kids will be challenged to build a bridge out of LEGOS (you can use Duplos, Megablocks, wooden blocks, etc.)
Kids will also work their gross motor skills by balancing on a bridge! Make your own in your backyard, or go to the park like we did.
I also always include facts pages about the animals being studied. This goats fact page is interesting and my kids love completing the goat notebooking page.
I recommend a copy of Farm Anatomy for help with drawing, plus it’s just fun to look at!
Billy Goat Recommended Books
There are many versions of The Three Billy Goats Gruff available. We love The Three Billy Goats Gruff by Paul Galdone.
A complete book list is included in the the lesson plans.
My children seriously love this story and these fun activities that go along with it!
