B is for Bear

This week we are working on the letter B. We started the week with a bear theme.

He sorted Gummy Bears by color onto little paper houses I made.
Once then were all sorted we counted them together and I wrote the number of  bear on the house.

He did a letter "B" Do A Dot worksheet from Homeschool Creations.
and he did a bear sizing worksheet and a pre-writing worksheet from Homeschool Creations

We made a cut and paste Letter "B" bear. I got the idea from here.

His favorite activity we did was painting a bear with chocolate pudding. The idea came from here.

I made my first Muffin Tin lunch for him, with of course a bear theme.

A bear shaped piece of bread with peanut butter, some bear cookies, star shaped bananas and apples, a spoonful more of chocolate pudding and some berry yogurt with star shaped sprinkles. Yum!

The books we read were Moon Bear by Brenda Guiberson

and The Bear by Raymond Briggs

The Bravest Ever Bear by Allan Ahlberg and Paul Howard


  1. I really like the houses you made. Not only sorting by color, but adding counting to it as well was really a great idea!

  2. I really like your bear! It came out so much better than ours. The four year old here says it looks like a beaver,haha!
    Those books look good too!

  3. Your bear letter craft is so cute! LOVE it!

  4. This is such a cute bear & I LOVE the painting w/pudding!

    Hope to see you link up to the Sunday Showcase - http://momto2poshlildivas.blogspot.com/search/label/Sunday%20Showcase


  5. Great lesson!! My son loved that your son was dressed like Buzz :). I love your letter B for Bear craft!

  6. I found your site a few days ago and loved your posts about books and associated crafts. I pinned it (from here/your blog directly) so I could find it again. Then it went viral. I'm not sure what the official definition of going viral is online, but I had dozens (over a hundred) re-pins in a few days. (Most of them were not from my current followers!) I came today to let you know, but I see that you have a "follow me on Pinterest" button. So, I hope you are pleased with the added attention!

  7. This is awesome! I have a preschool group at my house this week and I'm using several of your ideas. Thank you!!
