Bears, Bears, and More Bears!

We have been busy learning about Hibernation, Migration, and Bears!  Last week my students we able to bring in their bears.  We put them in our reading area and during “Read to Self”  and “Read to Someone” we read to our bears.  The children really seemed to enjoy having them and they were not a distraction at all. 

I created a new packet for this week, “All About Bears”.  I have been really trying to teach my students the components of non-fiction text and they love learning about animals.  We learned all about bears and created an Informational text writing as well.  They loved learning about bears.

Bears, Bears, and More Bears! - First Grade Roars!

I updated my Hibernation packet from last year and added another mini book to talk about both hibernation and migration together.

Finally we included a daily fiction story written by Karma Wilson.  We just love her Bear stories!  I can’t wait to read her newest one next week!
