Brown Bear,
Brown Bear


Read to children Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? by Bill Martin. After reading:

  • Point out each animal in the book to your children. Let them name the color of the animal and make the sound the animal makes.
  • Create a bear-shaped class booklet. Ask each child to draw a picture of something else Brown Bear might have seen (for example, a golden dinosaur). Bind the pages together and leave the book in your classroom reading center for children to share.
  • Give each child a precut bear-shaped sheet of paper and a small cup of chocolate pudding. Let children use the pudding to fingerpaint their bear shapes to create a brown bear. Students can eat any pudding that remains.
