We used our Bear Family Counters to count and make patterns.
Three Bears Size Sorting Game
This was Jonah's favorite activity and we've played it over and over for a week straight! I gathered items from all over the house for this activity. I found things that I had a small, medium, and large size for each item. I made a small, medium, and large bear as a sorting mat. Since Goldilocks made a big mess, Jonah had to help sort the items for "Baby, Mama, & Papa" Bear.
Supplies: Small, Medium, and Large Size of each item to sort. Some items I used...
- Jingle Bells
- Popsicle sticks
- Letter Magnets
- Board Books
- Three Bear Family Counters
- Measuring Worms
I chose to focus on the Letter P for Porridge, based on what my son needed to work on, feel free to focus on the Letter B for Bear. We made a bowl and talked about the Porridge that the bears ate. Next, I had him cut/paste different food pictures starting with the "P" sound on the bowl. For review: He pointed to the picture, repeated the word, and the made the "P" sound as I called them out.
"P" Food pictures I used: pumpkin, pasta, pretzel, pickle, pizza, popcorn, potato chips, and pancakes. I simply printed these from my clip-art on my computer.
We made a simple bear...complete with a bowtie!
Fine Motor Skills
Jonah used a Giant Push Pin to "Punch" along the lines of a Letter P. (Tape the paper down on the carpet or use a small carpet square on the table) After he was finished we held the letter up to the light so he could see the holes. Another way to view the letter is to hold up a flashlight and project the letter on the ceiling--"Letter Stars" in the dark!
Bear Pancakes for breakfast and Teddy Grahams for afternoon snack.
