1-2-3 Come Do a Brown Bear Activity With Me
Do you read the story Brown Bear What Do You See, by Bill Martin & Eric Carle? It’s one of my all-time favorite stories about colors.
With that book in mind, I designed this sweet “just the right size” Brown Bear booklet, as a fun way to reinforce the 5 senses.
Brown Bear not only sees things, but he hears, feels, smells, & tastes them too!
Children color their cover, complete the prompt by writing one or two words of what their bear saw, heard, tasted etc. then draw a picture.
Encourage older students to write short, but descriptive sentences and turn this activity into an emergent reader.
When students have completed their worksheet, they cut out the pages, put them in any order they want, then staple them to the “pencil” on the cover of their booklet.
There are pages with word prompts for K-1, as well as pages with picture prompts for PK kiddos. (See photo).
Besides the Itty Bitty booklet, the packet includes a Brown Bear 5 senses poster for reviewing the 5 senses.
I’ve also included a “Label the bear’s senses” worksheet, with a write-in, or cut & glue option. There are 2 size choices as well.
In addition to the booklet, students can also think of one more thing their bear could see, hear, smell etc. and write those answers on the bookmark-size worksheet.
As with all of my products, I include a completed sample, so that you can quickly & easily make an example of your own, to help explain what you want your students to do.
This activity packet is just $2.95. Click on the link to zip on over to my TpT shop to check it out. Brown Bear's 5 Senses.
The featured FREEBIE today also has a bear theme. It's a set of 12 pocket chart cards that practice beginning capitalization & end punctuation.
Besides the cards, the packet also includes a worksheet and certificate of praise. I designed these around another favorite bear story: Goin' On A Bear Hunt. Click on the link for an awesome telling of the tale by Michael Rosen, the author.
Well that's it for today. I'm anxious to finish the matching "Color Bear" emergent reader that will reinforce these word wall words.
I'll hopefully have it completed by the end of the day, so do pop back tomorrow for a look see. Wishing you a wonderful week.
