I decided to do a quick unit on hibernation with my kinders before February is here. I was inspired by two Pinterest pins that I came across, by Almost Unschoolers and this Hibernating Bear Craft. Here is a snapshot of our hibernation unit:
I found some books in my classroom library that went along with the hibernation theme. I read one a day, leading up to our bear craft.
The students made a little cave for their sleeping bear to be peaking out. We added fake snow glitter to the top of the cave to make it look like it was snowing!
All of the students wrote the same sentence. Sometimes I let them choose what they want to write, but this time we were focusing on finger space and making the letters the correct size. We wrote each word together as a whole group while I guided the class through each letter.
Here is our hibernation bulletin board. I used the same trees from my ornament bulletin board, I just added fake snow to them!
I am going to post this craftivity as a freebie, I just have to get it ready! Check back this weekend! ;)
