Polar Bear, Polar Bear..

One of our school annual projects is working crosscurricular in our EFL/ ESL classes.

So, these are some of the activities we did at school while reading Polar Bear, Polar Bear

We ..
  • made predictions. The kids looked at the cover of the book and told what they think the story would be about.
  • went on a picture walk through the book.  We didn't read the text, just looked at each picture and told what they thought is happening in each picture.
  • cololored the cover of our folder. 
  • told about you things we already knew about Polar regions.
  • learned about polar animals
  • made sandwiches and using a bear cookie cutter
  • voted about your favorite recipe with pumpkins
  • used the vocabulary cards to review and practice vocabulary
  • listened to the sounds different animals made
  • used the necklace to recalled the events of the story. 
  • sorted the words by beginning sounds, syllables, short or long words
  • estimated how many seeds there were in a pumpkin
  • made puppets with craft sticks to sequence events
  • played guessing games using suggested clues such as
It has prominent tusks
It has long whiskers
It can be extremely large
It has a wrinkled skin

  • sang a song
Arctic Sounds
Tune:"The Wheels on the Bus"
The walrus in the arctic go .
Moo, moo, moo, moo, moo, moo.
All around the Artic

  • found polar regions in a map
  • learned a poem

A polar bear
A polar bear lives in Alaska.
He never gets cold in a storm!
He swims in icy cold water
His heavy coat keeps him warm.
Warm, warm, warm, warm.
His heavy coat keeps him warm.
Warm, warm, warm, warm.
His heavy coat keeps him warm.
