is a great story to practice colors, color words and a variety of simple sight words. It’s one of my students all-time favorite books as well.
With that in mind, I designed this pocket chart packet.
After reading the story, review
each sentence using the pocket chart cards
Don’t have a pocket chart? You can also put magnets or Velcro dots on the back and use on your white board or flannel board.
To make the cards easy to sort they are written in matching character colors
For the last line “Children what do you see?” I’ve included another set
of colorful character cards using different clip art
Make an extra set and use these for a sequencing game
You can also pass this set out to students while you read the story. When you come to that character, the child holding that card places it on the board.
For more word work practice
, I’ve included 6 worksheets
where students read, trace, write, color, cut & glue,
character and color words.
These are great for Daily 5
word work, homework, or early finishers too.
I’ve also included a “Which was your favorite character?” graphing
extension, which goes along with the last worksheet
For an individual center, or whole-group activity, print, laminate & trim the individual word cards
. There’s a large set to use for your center, as well as a smaller set, to make for your whole group.
Children play “Build a Sentence”
by arranging the cards in appropriate order, which will help reinforce beginning capitalization
and end punctuation
When they’ve “built” their sentence, they record it on their “construction” worksheet
. (There are 5 options
, which include BW & color versions).
For a job well done, give children a “We read Brown Bear. I can retell the story” bookmark
, as a prompt to share the tale with their families.
This packet also comes in a Spanish version
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your kiddos enjoy the Brown Bear
story as much as mine.
