My students really enjoy Bill Martin books. “Brown Bear What Do You See?” as well as “Polar Bear What Do You Hear?” are two of their all-time favorite stories.
The latter is perfect for reviewing the “hearing” part of our 5 senses study.
I also use it as a way to introduce the vocabulary word “onomatopoeia”.
My Y5s really enjoy repeating that mouthful, and are proud that they can define and use, a cool, big word.
My students love learning about animals; and the farm unit, is one of our preschoolers favorites, so I wrote “Farmer Farmer What Do You Hear?” as a fun, parody-like writing prompt, for them to transition to after we read “Polar Bear What Do You Hear?”
Even your most reluctant writers will enjoy filling in the blanks, then illustrating their page for a sweet class-made book.
Completed projects also make an adorable bulletin board.
I’ve included a poster for the center of your display.
Later, collate the pages and add the cover to make the booklet, which is perfect for parent-teacher conferences.
Besides the class book, I’ve also included an emergent reader.
There are 3, BW options, making it suitable for PK kiddos as well as kindergarten and first grade, or to diversify within your classroom.
I've also included colorful teacher templates as well.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a barn-full of fun teaching.
