We spent last week with a new twist on an old favorite. We read Jan Brett’s Three Snow Bears and coupled it with some regular old Three Bears activities.
Front Cover (idea from Evan Moor Literature Pockets ~ Fairy Tales)
Back Cover (Elijah drew this as he watched Jan Brett’s video! I was so proud of him!)
This lapbook is two file folders glued side by side (or flap to flap!).
Here he is…proud as a peacock!
Inside of the first folder. Here is a link to the free unit and lapbook for The Three Snow Bears.
First folder books open. A few of the activities were coloring (finding Baffin Island on a map, coloring the Canadian Flag, etc.). A few were cut/paste (Imaginary Lines, Polar Bear Diet, Do People Live in Igloos?, etc.).
Many of the items in the second folder are from a portion of Evan-Moor’s Literature Pockets ~ Fairy Tales
The left side of the second folder. The pocket contains Elijah’s Three Bears story. It’s about three pandas who live in China and eat rice with chopsticks. The girl who breaks in to their house is Guo Shuang, and the story has a very happy ending.
Middle section of second folder.

Goldilocks and the Three Bears mini book (from Evan Moor Book); Elijah read this story to me.
Peek-a-boo Book that Elijah was able to do all by himself!

A sequencing activity (also from Evan Moor) that Elijah was able to complete on his own!
A picture of the house and puppets (yes, they all really fit in that pocket). Aren’t they cute? He did a great job on these and had fun acting out the story. (This was also from the Evan Moor Book.)
We’ll be learning even MORE about bears this week with a unit study on The Valentine Bears by Eve Bunting.
This looks like so much fun! Elijah did a great job on drawing the bear! Did he put on a puppet show for little bro?
That is a really adorable book. I wish that I had found something like that when my daughters were younger. Your son did a great job.
i love the bear on the front cover, very unique! melissa
