Intro to Bears

It has been a great week. We have read LOTS of bear books and we have been working on bear projects. The dress up area has been taken over by a large group of Teddy Bears.  Here are some of the activities we have been playing at this week:

Our Teddy Bear puzzle helps us practice buttons, zippers, snaps, and lacing. 

Building Forests for the Bear Counters.

Acting out "The Bear Feels Scared" in the dress up area.

The Search Party.

The TV hasn't been brought back to the basement from PJ day. They are enjoying pretending its a computer.

It's a picnic.

Creating our own Teddy Bears.

The Three Bears: Fact and Fiction

Baby Bear, Papa Bear, and Mama Bear

Cutting our Mini-Books that show the difference between fact and fiction with bears.

BEARS: Fact and Fiction


This month we will be doing a lot of projects and activities that are bear related. We will be investigating real bears and teddy bears. 

The purpose of the unit is to work on literacy and increase excitement for books.

There are some amazing bear characters and books that we will get to explore this month.  Corduroy, Paddington, Winnie the Pooh, Little Bear, Three Little Bears, Bear Hunt and The Bear Snores On, to name a few.  

Towards the middle/end of the month we will be having a week long Teddy Bear Reunion!

Coming Soon: Classroom Faces T-Shirts

We will also be working on our classroom t-shirts. These are the shirts that I am often wearing with the little faces all over them.  When we have the layout all situated, you will be able to place an order with me.  They are $13 for all sizes, and I cover the shipping and handling.
