This beautiful weather has made it hard to look at anything school-related over my spring break. I have been trying to do a little each night. Tonight I managed to focus long enough to create a bear life cycle sheet that I am planning to use along with a great non-fiction read aloud called Watch Me Grow: Bear. This book is part of a whole series of non-fiction book about the life cycle of animals published by Dorling Kindersley. Kids really love seeing how animals grow up and can make connections to their own experiences with growing! I am getting excited to start our fiction/non-fiction Bears Unit next week!
