Last week we worked on the book Ask Mr. Bear from our Before Five in a Row (B4FIAR) curriculum. It's about a little boy who tries to figure out what he should give his mom for her birthday. He asks a variety of animals and then Mr. Bear gives him an idea of the best birthday present: a big bear hug.
Here are some of the activities we enjoyed with this book:
|matched the sounds to the animals
|compared the brown bears and the grizzly bears at the AMNH
Did you know the brown bear is the largest carnivore?
They weigh over 1600lbs!
|move like the animals
|put together puzzle of mom and baby animals
|had an "unbirthday" party with friends
|all lap book activities found at homeschool share
Not pictured: lots and lots of big bear hugs!
