I hope you've been enjoying the free preschool activities as much as I've enjoyed making them.
Our kids have had a blast doing these activities and I'm glad to have the chance to share them with others.
This activity will focus on the classic Eric Carle book, "Brown Bear".
Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? is a classic book that you'll find in most any Pre-School classroom. My daughter's Pre-K class started reading the book this week and they sent home this activity for us to use.
The book itself is amazing for teaching children about colors and animals. This activity builds upon those concepts. Print out the worksheets below and cut them out. Remember to use safety scissors if your little one is going to help.
The first worksheet has the lines of the book written out. Cut these out and set them aside for now.
The final two worksheets have the animals that go alongside the sentences. There is one set of animals already colored and another that your child can color herself. Print one set out and set them aside.
Once you've cut out the animals and sentences, mix them up. Pick up the first sentence (start with Brown Bear) and read it to your child. Have your child hand you the animal that corresponds with the sentence you've just read. Doing this, the two of you can put the story together.
Use this activity to focus on colors and animals. You can also help your child to read the sentences and point out the matching words between the sentences and the animal you've cut out.
For those of you that don't already own this amazing book, you can purchase a copy of Brown Bear. Click the book to learn more.
