”Polar Bear Polar Bear What Do You Hear?”
by Bill Martin is one of my Y5s all-time favorite stories.
With that in mind, I designed this “Polar Bear What Do You Hear?” story wheel craftivity, which is a quick, easy & fun
way to assess comprehension
and practice the sequencing
and retelling a story
There are full color patterns to use for centers
, plus a black and white pattern so your students can make their own.
When everyone is done with their story wheel
, have children pick a partner, and take turns retelling the story.
We sometimes do this with our reading buddies
As a comprehension-assessment
tool, and for fine motor practice, another option is to make the “Polar Bear Pie Puzzles”
As with the story wheel, I’ve also included colorful patterns for a center and BW templates so students can color, cut and arrange their own.
There are 5 different
(See PREVIEW for samples.)
There's also a writing prompt worksheet
, where students write what happened in the story, which will further check comprehension
and reinforce chronological writing.
If you’re studying fractions
, be sure and take a teachable moment to review that vocabulary and information.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping all the sounds you hear in school are happy ones, filled with giggles galore.
