Eric Carle Day 2 -Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See?

Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See?
Read: Brown Bear, Brown Bear what do you See? by Bill Martin Jr.
This is E's favorite book right now!

Discuss: Review Colors

Song: BROWN BEAR, BROWN BEAR
Brown bear, brown bear, turn around.
Brown bear, brown bear, touch the ground.
Brown bear, brown bear, reach up high.
Brown bear, brown bear, touch the sky.
Brown bear, brown bear, bend down low.
Brown bear, brown bear, touch your toe.

Brown Bear Snack
I gave the kids chocolate Teddy Grahams, Goldfish crackers, and gummy Frogs.

Story Sequencing 
I used the Brown Bear Sequencing cards on page 22 of this download for the kids.  They each got an animal card and as I read the story again they placed them in a line.
 
Brown Bear Graph
I made a Brown Bear Dice on page 26 and printed out the Brown Bear Graph on page 28 for the kids to play a fun game.
Which animal was rolled the most and least?
