Let your students develop their oral language skills,practice telling stories, matching, sequencing, and using pronouns and prepositions with these adorable Bear Friends.
Model how to describe the picture so that another person can create a matching picture. Tell the students that they CANNOT point or say “Right there.” The goal is for them to give specific directions.
One student takes a completed Bear Card. That student will describe or give the directions. The other student has the bear mat and the pieces needed to complete the picture.
Select the number of pieces that would be needed to complete the task. If the task is to follow a simple direction, select only one item representing the feature (ex. a glass of milk, or a glass of juice etc.). If more than one feature is the target, select multiple examples (ex. a green sleeveless polka dot dress, or a green polka dot dress with an apron). A more complex level requires the use of directionality, angle, color, and/or position. (ex. A Santa bear wearing a green suit in front of a holiday tree, or a bear wearing a light green bathrobe to the left of a holiday tree.)
