We're going on a bear hunt.
Excellent book. One of my personal favs.
If you have never seen the book, here's the cover:
We used these from sparklebox for matching games:
I thought, meh, So boring...
Let's make a small world play!
So, we gathered whatever props we had....
The teddy, I mean, the fierce bear in the 'cave'
Setting up the scene
The deep, cold river.
He wanted to use real water but the dolls were wooden dolls :(
Thick, oozy mud!
I used felt but brown play dough would have been better
Some trees from his train set
The swirling, whirling snowstorm
Cotton balls and Christmas deco snowflakes
Lil Dragon's teddy bear and his study chair
In the bed, we had a pink blanket too!
He decided that the bear was very hungry.
So, he broke down the door and ermmm, ate the family
You can tell this is a good book when:
1. The child begs for it: Again, again, again!
2. He remembers the scenes by second reading
3. He chants phrases from the book while pooping.
See, learning is always better while the heart is filled with love,
the mind is relaxed and oh well, the teacher is dedicated.
