The Three Bears: A Free Song Poster

Who doesn't love the three bears! This song is always a lot of fun for my students and I to sing as we are doing our thematic study of The Three Bears. This song adds to student's comprehension, sequencing, and allows for students to further explore story elements such as characters.

To make this song into a chart size poster, simply copy this jpg into iphoto or whatever photo management system you use and then save it on a thumb-drive as a jpeg. Take this to your local photo store ( I really like Sam's Club for this) and make it into a poster. Or print as a poster using the print menu as a pdf. Be sure to laminate to make the colors more brilliant and for durability.  Enjoy!

The Three Bears and a Family Thematic Unit

Thanksgiving is the perfect season to talk about the importance of families, and to celebrate the importance they play in our lives.

To begin my unit study on families, I love to start with two of my favorite books, "Hairy Bear," and  "The Three Bears." 

After discussing fantasy stories, where animals talk, we move to the discussion to the families of each of my students. This unit always seems to be a favorite for all! And it should be, who is more important to each of us than our families!

Bears in Kindergarten

We have been studying bears this week, and will continue into next week. Bears is a great unit to study fiction and non-fiction and make comparisons.

The non-fiction study easily lends itself to studying key details in text. The fiction study is a great way to make the elements of a story come alive!
