Friday, 20 January More Bears! If you have not read this book, you must! We looked at these four types of bears: Here is the chart we created: Check out her bear unit here I wish I had more time to do all of the activities. We tasted strawberry jam, tuna fish, and honey on crackers.
We graphed our favourite bear food.
Also included in Rachelle's unit, students coloured in their own graph and then answered questions about it. We compared it to the book "Growl! You can download the student version by clicking the picture below. We have been working on addition and just started talking about "Tens Partners".
We created this rainbow anchor chart to help us remember them! In Rachelle's bear unit, she has this cute activity called "Bears in a Cave". One partner closes their eyes, the other partner uses bear counters I used Teddy Graham crackers and puts some in each circle.

You can use any number of bears. I had mine use all ten bears, so the sum always stayed This was great practice for the "Tens Partners".

Then they coloured the animals, cut them out with the labels, and glued them into the correct winter home. Then we added some cotton balls for snow! If you would like a copy of the poster, click the pictures below. I print the background on white 11 x 17" paper.
Amy also had a poem on her blog called "Winter Animals". It has some cute actions to go with it. We practiced the poem all week, then today we glued it into our poetry journals and illustrated it.

If you haven't checked out Mrs. Kacey Doodle Bugs Teaching, go there now! Check here and here. I created an art lesson to go with these books. There is a simple pattern to use and you can create any of the four bears: Students use plastic combs or a piece of cardboard to create different paint techniques.Here are some of the nonfiction books we read this week to help us fill in our bear chart.
