Going on a bear hunt!

Found this idea on my best friend Pinterest and redid it to Dr. Jean's Bear Hunt! :)
We used it to go through the song, but it could also be in a center for the kiddos to go through it by themselves. :) Can't believe Mon. is the first of Oct. New ideas coming soon! Happy Sat.!

Picnic Time For Teddy Bears and Kinders!

This week we are having our Teddy Bear Picnic! We have been doing lots of teddy bear things this week as we prepare. :) Our craft this week was a jointed Teddy. I found it online and made patterns for the kiddos to trace. He turned out cute! I made my own big bear for the board outside our classroom.
I wrote up some history on the teddy bear to go along with our theme. :)
AND, how perfect our author of the month's books go with our theme! We did a graph of our favorite Bill Martin Jr. bear book. :) I found the cute stickers at Mardels last year.
We are looking forward to doing some fun things with our bears on Friday, Teddy Bear Picnic day! We also made some beary cute disguises~ bear ears~ and we'll give ourselves bear noses with eyeliner! ;) Happy Wed.!

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom look what we did in our room!

September our author of the month was Bill Martin Jr., and thanks to Pinterest, we found some fun new ideas to do for this fun author!
Here is our Chicka Chicka Boom Boom tree. I changed it up from my pinterest find by using strips of paper and alphabits cereal. :)
Here is our September board with our finished trees and our cute apples, also a pinterest find. Goes well with Chicka Chicka 123 too!
Here was our special yummy treat, also from pinterest, but I used green twizzlers instead of laffy taffy! To make it stick, we put icing on the top, it's great glue.:) That's a cookie for the tree trunk and milk duds for the coconuts. :) Hope you are having a September to remember in your classroom too!! Happy fall!!
