Today we started a week of activities surrounding the favorite book Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? I love reviewing colors and introducing the kids to characteristics of print. Of course we talked about the cover, title, author, and illustrator, and today we read the book for enjoyment. The rest of the week we will read for a purpose - looking for "popcorn" words, comparing different versions of the story, and acting out the story. We will also tie in math and science wherever possible. We did a math sorting and graphing activity today using gummy bears.
First we sorted them by color:
Then we graphed our gummy bears:
After we talked about our graphs, we got to eat our gummy bears! Mmmmmm...
I created the sorting and graphing sheets the kids used. If you would like them, here they are:
