Use these documents to introduce and discuss Berlioz the Bear by Jan Brett. This document aligns with CCRL.1.4 I will learn to identify words and phrases that suggest feelings or appeal to the senses.
I begin the lesson by showing the pictures of the ipods to attempt to access students' background knowledge. We discuss what they are and what they're for and how they make us feel.
I read aloud Berlioz the Bear by Jan Brett, pointing out the words that suggest feelings or appeal to the senses.
Finally, I play "Flight of the Bumblebee" (can be found on Youtube) and ask students to close their eyes and listen. I then pass out the document so students can record how the music makes them feel as they hear it.
