I love this time of year because I teach my unit on Bears. We will learn about a new bear each week for 4 weeks (Panda, Polar, Black and Brown bears). At the end of each week, we will write what we have learned about the bear and follow it up with a craft. At the end of our unit we will write a single piece about our favorite bear. I also incorporate some math into our unit where we will graph gummy bears and some other numeracy activities. The Unit will come to a close just before February vacation. We will wrap up with a Teddy Bear Picnic....more info to come.
Just a reminder as we discussed in conferences that we are now really working hard and focusing on our teen numbers and writing our first and last names. Feel free to practice and encourage your children at home.
