Poppins Book Nook- Folktales

Poppins Book Nook

The theme this month for Poppins Book Nook was folktales.

It was another crazy busy month here- but for a good reason this time.  We left on May 9th and didn’t get home until May 20th for a trip to Disney World!  So, there hasn’t been a whole lot of time this month to get a super creative activity done for Poppins Book Nook.  Here is what we did do:

We learned about Norway and read Three Billy Goats Gruff, a folktale from Norway.  We watched several different versions of the story on Youtube.

Exploring Norway

 Hailey and Hunter both made a troll.

Hailey retold the story of the Three Billy Goats Gruff- we used printables from Journey Into the World of Folktales from Enchanted Homeschooling Mom to make the goats.  First she drew a little backdrop on the white board, then she used her troll and the 3 billy goats to retell the story.

While we were in Disney World visiting Epcot, we stopped in for a visit in Norway.  After we went on the fun boat ride, Hailey and Hunter posed with this troll.  We also noticed that they had several different versions of Three Billy Goats Gruff on sale in their store.
