Jesse Bear, What Will You Wear?

It's been a busy couple of weeks around here and our Before Five In A Row adventure was one of the things that was put on the back burner. We continued reading our stories and have been talking about some of the points of the curriculum. The more hands on projects will be finished up this week.

In addition to the curriculum this is what we did...

Weather Bear Paper Doll - I printed additional "warm weather" outfits and we colored them for additional outfits for Jesse Bear.

I found Jamberry by Bruce Degen and used it as a go-along for Blueberries for Sal. Grom loves that book (I'm on the lookout for our own copy) and we've worn out the story tape listening to it in the car. Grom realized that Jesse Bear and Jamberry are drawn by the same illustrator. He loves the name Bruce Degen and giggles everytime we bring up his name. Very fun and a great memory.

We have a couple of more "bear" books coming in the next couple of weeks, so I'm sure we'll be pulling in more bear activities then.


  1. I almost picked this book up from the library today!! I will have to get it tomorrow when I go back to get my books that I had to leave there because I forgot my library card :0). Thanks for sharing.

    How are you today? I have picked up my reading plan again and am doing fairly well. I am trying not to be to rigid about it and give myself some flexibility.

    JOYfully in Him,

  2. Looking at your books, and activities gets me so excited for the fun season I have coming up with Micah!
