Bear~y Cute Teddy Bear Unit

We developed this Teddy Bear Unit to use in the beginning of the school year.  Our goal was to create a fun way to introduce reading and math to the students.  We also aligned the unit to the common core standards for your convenience!  You're "bear~y" welcome!

Bear Necessities...
In our unit we wrote an emergent reader that you can use to introduce your students to their school box of school supplies.  Here is an example of a couple of the pages.


I can "BEAR~LY" wait to use these thematic centers....
We are going to use the math and literacy activities in our Teddy Bear themed centers.  Here are several pictures of some of the activities you will find in our Teddy Bear Unit.  There are many more in the unit! 


The students will match the bears (upper~case) and honey jars (lower~case).  Then the students will write the correct upper and lower~case letters on their record sheet.  We have 3 different record sheets to choose from. 



The student will spin the spinner.  Looking at the 5 frame, name the number.  Write the number in the correct row on the number sheet.  Continue until one row is filled and answer the questions on the right hand side.





The student will place the record sheet on a clipboard.  Search the room for teddy bears.  Write the appropriate word on the record sheet after finding each sight word written in blue, green, and red,





The student will choose a pair of bears (different patterns that are pre~made by the teacher) and color the bears on the record sheet.  Color the boxes to continue the pattern in each row.


The student will match the bear (beginning sound letter) and animal buddy (beginning sound) cards.  Then draw a line to match the bear with the animal buddy on the record sheet.

Everything in life I will share, except my teddy bear...
Our students can make their own colorful teddy bear in the free choice art center.  The students can choose all of the same colored pieces for their teddy or a different color for each piece. 


When the students are finished, they can name an item that begins with the same letter as their name (ex: Amber likes apples) or an items that begins with the same letter as Teddy (ex: Teddy likes toys).

You are a "bear~y" special friend if you check out our unit!  We think you will love it!

  3. Thanks for your sweet comments! We had so much fun making this unit and cannot wait for the kiddos to use the centers. We also cannot wait to use the little book, Buddy Bear, with the students to introduce the school supplies in their school box.

  4. Microsoft's products the brutal internal competition, how
    many teams are less than ready for release,
    has been internal eliminated. Retail stores in your locality or even online stores
    offer Microsoft points codes that you can buy
    with your credit cards. The punishment is simple, a lifetime certification ban for anyone whom contravenes the disclosure agreements, commits fraud or cheats - as
    well as in cases of fraud or theft, a call to the local police.
