Going on a Bear Hunt...

Along with the letter B study we HAD to go on a bear hunt. I was hoping it would go well because we used to do the bear hunt song to keep them occupied in restaurants about a year ago, but it would end up making Wesley cry because he "didn't want to see a bear!". When I first told him we were going to do a bear hunt he was still a little reluctant :) But he persevered!

We read Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen. We even watched his video on You Tube. Of course, everyone had to have their own bear with them:

Does he maybe still look a little scared?

Of course, my junior teacher has to be involved in everything so she made her own bear hunt book to read to them- love her! Then we went on a bear hunt under and over everything in our house- this was the big mountain:
While Sissy was leading the bear hunt upstairs, Jackson and I were quickly constructing a bear cave downstairs:
Inside were bears for everyone holding treats (teddy grahams of course) to snack on in the cave:
Maybe he likes bear hunts now?
Always have to include sister:
I was so excited about this sensory bin. I totally copied it from one of my favorite blogs, Delightful Learning. I had a lot of fun making it. I especially loved the mud and river made of paint in a bag. It felt so good and squishy :)
The kids had a lot of fun with it and made a huge mess as usual.
Oh no, the bear came to their house!
I love anything that has my boys using their imaginations- and playing together no less:

We had a fun day of memory (and a little mess) making!
