Iata o parte din activitatile din aceasta saptamana:

We're Going on a Bear Hunt Theme (from Homeschool Creations)

Since 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' is one of my daughter's favorite books and I found this lovely set of printables at Homeschool Creations I've decided to have the bear hunt theme this week. It was a big hit, my girl loved it!
We dramatized the story, we arranged the cards in order to follow the storyline and then, as I read through the book, she would move the characters along the images. And then she loved pretending to be the bear and scaring everyone away!

Pentru aceasta saptamana, am folosit setul de printables 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt', facut dupa cartea cu acelasi titlu, de la Homeschool Creations. E una din cartile preferate ale I-nei, asa ca i-a placut mult sa punem in scena povestea vanatorii de urs si jocurile care au urmat. Am pus in ordine cartonasele, am ales personaje, si am pus in scena povestea!

Setting up the story, lining up the characters.
Getting closer to the bear's cave.
Oh no, the bear is following us, we're scared, let's hide in bed!
Choosing the beginning sound, a favorite activity!

She repeated this activity each day.

Arranging bears by size.
To go with our bear theme, we dot-painting a bear and other fall-related pictures.
Am facut mai multe planse cu cariocile do-a-dot, ocazie cu care ne inscriem in Concursul ursuletilor nazdravani!

And of course, we watched the video, made from the book, another favorite:
Si ne-am uitat la video, facut dupa carte.
