Here is a cute pattern of a teddy bear that is sure to brighten up the coldest winter day!
I am providing 4 patterns. Two patterns have the ears attached to the bear's head. (They're less likely to become lost!) The other two patterns have the ears detached. Both patterns come in a black and white and color version.
The children could use crayons to color the black and white versions. You will want the children to set the arms and legs in front of the bear's torso. The ears should be positions behind the bear's head. The parts could be stapled together or mounted on a large sheet of construction paper. These would be cute for a bulletin board. Can you think of a catchy heading? An idea might be, "Have a BEARY Good Year!"
The black and white patterns could also be printed on colorful cardstock to create a center with preschoolers and kindergartens.
The bears will work well for:
1. The concept of parts to whole.
2. Prepositions (placement of bear parts in relation to each other)
3. Reading a story about a bear.
4. Singing a song about a bear.
5. Bear theme unit.
If you are using this for a center, the pieces could also be laminated for long lasting use. For special needs children, you could attach Velcro (Trademark) coins to bear pieces for them to fasten and unfasten.
I made this FREE bear pattern to accompany a SMART Board lesson. If you are interested in the SMART Board lesson, please view it here: Letters into Words SMART Notebook 11
This bear pattern is my own work. It was created with the shapes tool from my computer software which I have a commercial use license for. Additionally, it was tested by me for proper dimensions with each piece. Please do not take my work and claim it as your own. Copyright 2015.
