Mommy School ~ Bb is for Bear {We're Going on a Bear Hunt}

This happened on Wednesday, 9th April, which was Day 3 of our Letter Bb week.  We did “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt” and had lots of fun.  I borrowed the Chinese version of the book from the school library.  He loved this book, especially the following text:

We can't go over it.
We can't go under it.
Oh no!
We've got to go through it!

After reading the book, I asked him if he wants to go on a bear hunt.  He replied, "No. Me scared!"

Pretend Play
I created a pretend play tub (inspired from here) to recreate the scenes from the book: grass - green shredded paper that came with an Easter basket, water - water dyed blue, mud - chocolate frosting, forest - pinecones that Kai gathered from our backyard and trees from our Playmobil, snowstorm - cotton balls, cave - a gardening decor we had for a while, bear inside the cave.  Kai had fun playing with the tub and finding the bear inside the cave! 

Today on our way home from Gymboree, Kai saw a "river" and said "uh-oh".  He also walked through a forest and bravely walked through long grass.  

Dot painting Bb's, left-to-right tracing, size sequencing (we need to practice this more!), finding the bear (he really loves this but we need to work on recognising numbers 6 to 10)

Making our B is for bear craft.  I pre-cut everything but Kai glued everything down himself after I showed him how the bear should look like.
