Brown Bear, Teddy Bears, and Readers....Oh My!

We have been super busy the past few weeks learning about Brown Bear, Brown Bear, exploring our Teddy Bears and learning all about Readers Workshop!!!

We practiced our cutting skills and made our bears.  Then we wrote about which two color bears we used to pattern on our tie.

We have been doing Brown Bear Brown Bear math workstations.  Here is one on sorting by color.

This is our work job station where we are counting out a given number onto each bear.

Here is another station...pull an animal, color on your recording sheet, count the dots, and write the number.
We have 8 workstations every week!

We made bear bags!  Inside our bag was our sequencing activity so we could retell our story!

We explored our bears!

Here is my favorite Baylor Bear! :)

We celebrated with a teddy bear picnic!  We ate yummy honey treats and watched the teddy bear picnic video and the famous gummy bear song!
We have enjoyed learning all about Readers Workshop.  We have been practicing Read to Self and building up our stamina!

We learned about Read to Someone!  We can read to our reading buddy and take turns!

We are learning about Daily 5 and our center rotations which include:
Read to Self
Read to Someone
Word Work
Guided Reading Groups with our teacher

It has all been super fun!  I will be back with more pictures of our day and pictures of our farm fun!
