Product Description

One of my all-time favorite books, is Brown Bear Brown Bear. It's great for emergent readers, a super way to practice colors, and perfect for sequencing.

With that in mind, I designed this Brown Bear Literacy Game Card packet, with 23 sets of playing cards to help practice a variety of standards.

The packet includes 2 sets of clip art character cards, with 2 sets of real photograph cards, so that students can match real to pretend, or real to real, or pretend to pretend. There’s also a set of character word cards.

Besides matching games, students can sequence the character cards in correct story order, or put them in alphabetical order, as well as sort the cards by color, or spatial directions of the picture. i.e. looking left, looking right, or looking forwards/front.

I’ve included 3 different sorting mats for these independent center activities.

So that children can make their own “Brown Bear Character Matching Game”, I’ve included black & white patterns too.

Later, these can be sequenced in appropriate story order and stapled, to make an Itty Bitty booklet as a fun way for children to retell the story to their family.

Besides the smaller set of character cards, there's also a larger set in both color & BW, plus a matching "cut on the dashed line to make a puzzle” set of cards.

There are also ordinal number cards, ordinal number word cards, paint splat color cards, colorful bear cards, and color word cards to provide even more game options, which can be done as an independent center or played with a partner.

The cards can also be used while you're reading the story.
Choose whichever sets you like, then pass them out to your students.

When you get to that part in the story, the children holding those cards bring them up and place them in a container, or put magnet dots on your story telling set of cards, so that children can place them in correct sequential order on your white board.

As another whole group game, you can also pass out the cards and play an "I Have; Who Has?” game. i.e. “I have the red bird, who has the red color card, or the red word card or the real picture card?"

Another super-fun whole group game, which is an interesting way to practice sequencing the story, is to play "What's Missing Flip?” with the character cards. Directions are included in the packet.

Besides playing this game with the character cards, you can also practice colors with your little ones by using the color splats, color words, or color bear cards.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your kiddos enjoy playing these Brown Bear games.
