I made this bear lapbook with/for DD a while back. Since we’re talking about forest animals, it was time to bring it out in the workboxes again. The girls have both had fun with it (even LD has had a couple of goes).
It contains a number of different little activities. As you can see from the lapbook cover, DD made her own little pom-pom bear. Then we used the trimmings from that to glue onto the bear for inside her labpook (see the picture below.)
The front cover is from Jan Brett’s website: Bear Mask pdf.
There is a section in the lapbook where the kids have to put the colored bear in the proper colored cave. Other activities include looking at different kind of bears on flip cards, sorting by sizes, and everybody’s favorite section–a “feed the bear its food” (picture on the right below)!
You kids might like the stories about Bear and his friends – mouse, hare, badger, gopher, mole, wren, raven who all gather in Bear’s cave while he is hibernating. This is called Bear Snores On (affiliate link):
Another book by the same author, Bear Wants More (affiliate link), shows how much Bear eats after waking up from his long hibernation.
That’s about it! Hope your kids have fun!
