Bear Snores On Activities

It is now Spring down here in Australia and I am SO looking forward to warmer days. 
Springtime sure makes you feel good after a cold winter.
We have done a lot of Winter activities. 

We did some fun activities about the story Bear Snores On by Karma Wilson.

I have the CD with the story. Listening to the CD really brings the story to life.

We did a fun graphing activity called 'What Woke Up Bear'. For a bit of fun, my little ones had a guess what they thought would wake up bear. They graphed the results on their recording sheet.



 Using the graph, we did some simple addition activities.


We also did a Syllable Sort for one and two syllable words. 


  
We had a discussion about whether 'fire' had one or two syllables. This is a tricky one and either is correct. So I let my little ones decide.

We also did a reading response and craft activity. We are more than half way through Kindergarten and it warms my heart when I see how far they have come with their writing.



My little ones were so excited when they saw our bulletin board.  I had this great picture of a bear that finished off our display beautifully.


Here is a preview of the activities in my pack on TPT.

Stay tuned for some more of our fun activities that we did for Winter. I have also got a Winter freebie coming up.

I love the bear bulletin board Rhonda! Isn't it amazing how much you can get from reading 1 book. Thanks for visiting my blog and I love it when I find Aussie blogs out there as well. It's like making a new friend that is down the road- relatively speaking in blogland.
