**** My experiences with these activities - UPDATE: I LOVE interactive and authentic learning. I have to get my students up out of their seats and moving around the room. The concept of a Bear Hunt for prepositions has excited me for a long time -- In the past, I've used stuffed bears hidden around in my Speech-Language office to target prepositions. I finally finished these materials last week and tried them out with a group of three second grade students who were either language impaired and/or ELL/ESL. I dramatized the presentation to the max, and they seemed to have a great time. I was nervous that the content might be a little below level for this group, but they mixed up "beside" and "behind" and had trouble with "in front of," so this turned out to be a good and memorable activity for them. They all wanted to find the bears to the point that we had to use our Talking Stick to remind each other whose turn it was to participate.

I hope you have a GREAT time with the Bear Hunt in your classroom. PLEASE SHARE your stories with me and let me know how you have used this with your students! If you have any ideas for additional materials, contact me. I would love to hear from you.

Happy Hunting!
