Jesse Bear Unit ~ Preschool Corner {&5K too!}

Our Jesse Bear unit was put off a little bit and then I forgot to post about it. Somehow I didn’t manage to get as many pictures of the activities that we did to go along with the book…or somehow I’ve managed to lose them in the meantime.


From our Jesse Bear, What Will You Wear? printables we talked about:

~ the foods that Jesse ate in the book {and the ones that we didn’t’ like or did like}

~ counted ducks in the tub and worked on 1:1 counting up to the number 15

~ practiced rhyming words

~ measured vegetables that we saw in the book

In addition to the printables, here’s a little peek at a few of the  ‘hands-on’ things we did together {and I managed to get a picture of}.

Bear Pancakes ~ all of the kids enjoyed this part of the Jesse Bear unit! We used chocolate syrup to make the mouth and raisins for the eyes.  Definitely a yummy addition.


The Flag ~ We talked about the flag of the US. There is a ball in the book that looks like a flag, so we made our own from construction paper and used silver star stickers for the field of blue. We also worked on the Pledge of Allegiance.


A few more things {not pictured}:

~ Jesse Bear’s drawers were very neat and organized…similar to another little boy’s drawers {and not those of his older brother}.

~ We made paper doll bears and dressed them up.

That’s about it for our week with Jesse Bear ~ how was your week?
