Kids Storytime: We're Going On A Bear Hunt



Primarily, we acted out the story sequence. She loved darting from one element to the next! She was able to decode the different textures to identify what part of the story each represented.From there, she acted the bear hunt journey in her own way. There were cushions and legs going in all directions! Before too long, she was flushed in the face with a beaming smile from ear to ear. This type of gross motor play was the perfect way to engage her in a whole-body learning experience.Once all her wiggles were out, we added the obstacle course printable cards. Before long she was flying from Whatsie cushion to Whatsie cushion like a bat, wobble wading across the corflute river with a duck pout and crawling across the ground like a caterpillar.It was exciting to add the animal movements to level up a game that we have played so many times!You could even use this activity during math or science lessons! Explore different natural habitats and biomes as part of the obstacle course!




Kids storytime: We're Going on a Bear Hunt



Before the kids arrived, we scattered the lion plates in the grass. After reading and acting out the story, the kids hunted for lions and brought them back to our main area. Together we placed them in alphabetical order.


The kids painted their paper with the sponge brushes, then stuck their polar bears on while the paint was wet, and sprinkled the salt on top. A few kids also added the stickers we gave out at the end of storytime (like the snowman in the picture above). Anything with paint is always a bit hit (although also very messy!)


Early Literacy Aside--Explain: Teddy Bear puppet talking to introduce the skill: Today we are going to develop your children's story knowledge and thinking skills. These skills help them to understand what they read when they learn to read. [Then hide the bear in a black piece of paper like a cave.]Read We're Going on a Bear Hunt, putting motions to the words.Activity: Give children colored stips of paper to represent each of the scenes in the book. Connect each color strip with each scene; for example: blue for river, green for grass, brown for mud. Now, retell the story using first, second, third, etc.--first we went to the river and as they say the phrase they place the blue colored strip down, and so on. For the last action where they go home, have a piece of material to represent a blanket.Early Literacy Aside--Example: With this activity what your child knows, by helping them in a couple of ways--retelling the story so they understand how stories work and also with sequencing and connecting colors with actions which develops their thinking skills. 041b061a72
