Beary Fun Learning

IWho out there taught their class all about bears this month or plan to in February? I have found some of my favourite beary fun crafts & activities that I wanted to share with y'all.

Since it's winter we will start with our favourite white fluffy bear, the polar bear.
This craft from Mrs. Patton's Class Instagram is one of my favourite. I love how she has students put white fur (white paint) on their polar bear's black skin (black outline). Yes, polar bears have black skin! This craft makes that fun fact memorable.

If you are just looking for loads of activities related to polar bears then you must check out Becky at Teaching, Learning & Loving. From books to videos, crafts to colors, counting to writing, and addition to science activity Becky provides you with many beary fun learning activities.

What kid doesn't enjoy playing with shaving cream. The Crafty Classroom provides directions for creating that perfect puffy polar bear.

Bern at Mom to 2 Posh Lil Divas also provides a fun craft with shaving cream, but she doesn't stop there. She also provides you with book suggestions about polar bears and a beary tasty treat, 

Looking for a polar bear freebie? Jennifer from First Grade Blue Skies provides a polar bear writing freebie on her TPT Store.

All beary get pretty lazy when it's time to hibernate. Put those bear facts, new terms and writing together with this adorable writing activity from Mrs Lees Kinder Kids.

Eric Carle's Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? is one of my favourite books for early readers. Get all things brown bear here at 1 plus 1 plus 1 equals 1.

If you are taking your class on a bear hunt Buggy and Buddy can show you how.

Teaching the Little People offers a cute note to send home for the kiddos to bring those teddy bears to class.

Michelle at Apples & ABCs provides you with the cutest brown bear craft and writing activity.

I spotted this on Kindergarten Smiles and thought it was such a great idea for when all the kiddos bring in their teddy bears to class.

A brown bear lesson isn't complete without Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Head here for a Goldilocks and the Three Bears printable.

Do you incorporate panda bears when teaching about bears? If so, this panda craft is a great way to introduce tear art. I found this craft here

I didn't find a link for this craft. It was just on my Pinterest but talk about perfect for ending your lesson on bears and transitioning into Valentine's Day!

In need of a bulletin board idea to go along with your bear unit? I found a great bulletin board idea here
