Baby Bear, Baby Bear, What Do You See?

Our theme this month is bears, and we started with two classic Bill Martin Jr. books, Baby Bear, Baby Bear, What Do You See? and Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear?, both with simple, bold illustrations by Eric Carle. The kids loved guessing which animal was on the next page, and some of them even made up their own lines. They also liked talking about the different animals and mimicking the animal sounds.

After we read, the kids were allowed to visit the different stations set up around the room.

Station 1: Play-Doh with cookie cutters.

Station 2: Little plastic bears hidden in rainbow colored rice. They used tongs to pick the bears up and sort them by color into little plastic bowls.

Station 3: I printed a picture of a teddy bear and made copies for all the kids. I set out glue sticks and tissue paper scraps for them to “color” the bear with.

There will be more bears next week. Hope to see you there!
