“The cold winds howl and the night sounds growl. But the bear snores on.” Wow!-that line from Karma Wilson’s Bear Snores On perfectly describes our current weather conditions. I love this cute little book. I read it every year for my hibernation unit. It’s a great time to discuss what strategies different animals use to survive the winter. I have a FREE teacher resource on my Teachers Pay Teachers that explains several interesting winter survival strategies that animals use.
The photo shows my story time set up. Students arrive to find Mr. Bear napping by the ‘campfire’. The visiting animals are hidden in a bag and are pulled out as the story progresses. We also have a little tea party. Each student has a teapot (actually a metal coffee creamer). Kids just love to pour their own “tea”. We also snack on popcorn.
Happy Hibernation, friends. Spring will come soon!
