This week in Kindergarten, we are reading a fun book to go with their hibernation unit. It is called Sleep, Big Bear, Sleep by Maureen Wright. In this book, Big Bear has trouble hearing Old Man Winter tell him to sleep. We find rhyming words while we read this story.
After that silly story, we read a book on Tumblebooks called Lewis Cardinal's First Winter. This story gives us more information about how different animals get ready for winter.
Then the students draw a picture of one way that an animal gets ready for winter.
We read Otis by Loren Long. As we read the story we talked about the big, main thing that happened in each part of the story. The students then drew pictures or wrote sentences to retell the story.
