So we read through the story together with the children joining in all the bits they could remember. I then used these sequencing cards, to go through the order of the story with the children, asking them what happened first, afterwards, next etc.
Once we had sequenced the story cards, we used them as a reminder as they put together their maps.
We then made some binoculars out of some cardboard inner rolls, they used felt tip pens to decorate them
They wanted a photo taken through their binoculars, so here it is, they loved it.
So we were now prepared to go on our bear hunt.
Through the mud, some jelly, they did try it with their feet but didn't like the feel of it. I was undecided whether or not to dye the jelly brown or not, so did only a bit of it.
Through the wood.
Then of to find the bear in the bear cave.
Then running home when they found the bear, with lots of giggles.
I didn't use these with mine but did come across these lovely colouring in pages to go with We're Going On A Bear Hunt.
