The Ladybug Class (older toddlers) are learning about bears this month. They are reading Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See? as part of their learning, which is a great book to reinforce color concepts. Mrs. Cathy found gift bags in the colors of all of the Brown Bear animals and each day they will review a color. Inside each bag are items in that certain color that the children can explore. Today's color was brown and the children got to explore items like a large penny, a nut, a toy cow, and a leaf.
Mrs. Cathy introduced the children to Mr. Bear. He is a stuffed bear puppet with a clear pocket on his tummy. Each day Mrs. Cathy is placing a card in the pocket with a picture of the day's color and animal.
