Sharing a book- We're going on a bear hunt.

Tonight we shared the book We're going on a bear hunt. This book has had great reviews on goodreads and scored 4.1.  Many people like the repetitive nature of the book as it allows children to memorise it and feel like they are reading it themselves. This is so true as sometimes I stop reading mid sentence and Little Boo is able to carry on.
Some of our resources

I printed out some resources from Twinkl so we were able to make puppets and even used the backgrounds to re create the story.

When sorting out our spare room this weekend I came across loads of plastic wallets! So put these to use making a washing line sequencing activity of the story with the resources from Twinkl.  We watched the clip on youtube for We're going on a bear hunt then was able to pause the clip at each different section giving Little boo time to select the correct order and peg it up. Little Boo loved this and was good at putting the story in order on the line.

Playing with our stick puppets

Then Little Boo wanted the cave with the bear inside

Then the people all walked in

We then looked through the book and Little Boo matched the characters with the stick puppets.
This is a fantastic book with lovely images and a wonderful story line. The best thing is that the story can be sang so we got out the musical instruments! Little Boo loved playing and even tried to keep to the beat.  I hope that this has provided you with some inspiration.
