This story companion pack will be the perfect addition to your winter, hibernating animal or bear studies. This packet is meant to accompany Karma Wilson's beloved tale, "Bear Snores On". My students loved these activities and I know that yours will too! Best of all, most of the activities are LOW to NO prep! AND it's printer ink friendly! Both color and black and white printing options are available--simply print the version that you prefer!


The following activities are included:

10 different vocabulary words from the text featuring real life photographs and an optional student worksheet for further practice.

Read the Room Vocabulary: features 10 different images from the story, as well as three different versions of student recording sheets: write the word, ABC order and sentence writing.

Comprehension questions and story element posters: seven different comprehension questions as well as posters for characters, setting, problem & solution are all included.

Story retelling/sequencing activities: pocket chart cards, as well as three different student worksheets are included.

Headband/Story Craftivity: students have the option to create a bear headband or a retelling craft that features the animals in the story or story elements.

Bear and His Friends Emergent Reader: simple, repetitive text is included in this easy to read sight word based reader.

Bear and Characters Roll & Graph: a cube template is included to create a fun "character cube", students simple roll, graph and then complete the recording sheets. This makes a fun and engaging math center activity!

Bear's CVC Words: 20 different C-V-C patterned word cards are included as well as two different student worksheets for further practice. Students simply match up the bear cave with the picture to the bear that features the correct CVC word. This makes a great literacy center activity!
Label a Bear: four different student labeling worksheets are included. One version features a word bank where students simply write the word, another features words for students to trace, and the last two feature words for students to cut-out and label the parts of the bear.
Bear and Friends Addition: ten different ten-frame clip cards that feature addition problems are included. A fun roll and cover game board is also included as well as two different student worksheets. This makes a great math center activity!
Hibernating Animal Sort: 14 different animal picture cards (real life photographs AND clip-art images are included) as well as pocket chart headers are included in this activity. An optional student worksheet and answer sheet is included.
Response to Literature pages: six different response to literature pages are included, with different options (i.e. with lined writing pages and without, with a story prompt & without).
