We're Going On A Bear Hunt | Letter Bb Week


I read the book 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' by Michael Rosen and when I heard the children say "AGAIN, "AGAIN"! This is what I did, I showed them a video of the author telling the story which I knew they would love. I posted it below.

At first they looked at the video strange, then they started laughing, never taking their eyes off of him! LOL

After the video I asked them if they would like to go on a bear hunt, and they replied "YES!"
I made twenty of these teddy bears the night before out of cardstock, drew the faces, numbered, laminated. The next morning I went outside and hid them around the yard.
Not in very hard spots.

She found a few.

When we went back inside we played a matching the bear game with his family.

They would match the colors as we sang a tune.

Example: Brown Bear, Brown Brown where's your family? repeat

or Yellow Bear, Yellow Bear where's your family? repeat

Some kids would place their bear down with it's family right away. One child would do a dance, turn around and then place his bear down. This was really a fun, fun game!

Thanks for stopping by!
