Book Week kicked off with being cozy…….as cozy as your just at home with your pajamas (PJs). 🙂
…and the Brave Bears even experienced to read in an unusual place while they were in their PJs. Reading in Unusual Places was also an opportunity for the Brave Bears to apply what they know about safety – make sure that there is no car when crossing the road.
Dropped Everything and Read (DEAR) happened on Tuesday. The Brave Bears either read alone, shared-reading or enjoying Readers time a group of friends.
Teacher Readers happily read to the Brave Bears on Wednesday. They had four Teacher Readers in a day!
Ms. Cheryl reading an Eric Carle Book to both NurseryB and Brave Bears
Mr. Bandt from the French department reading another Eric Carle book
Ms. Karen reading a Chinese story
Mr. Cruz reading Joy Cowley’s books
Ms. Kasey also came to read to the class on a different day.
A Parent Reader came on Thursday. During the story time, the Brave Bears confidently answered questions related to the story and even started to make predictions about what will happen next.
Books Come Alive and Book Character Dress-Up happened on Friday. The Brave Bears proudly came to the school showing their “special dress” for the day. Some of them even took their character seriously. 🙂
Here are short clips of the Brave Bears Eric Carle’s Books Come Alive experiences.
In addition, the Brave Bears also decorated their door inspired by one of Eric Carle’s story, The Tiny Seed. Just like the Tiny Seed, the Brave Bears are blooming and growing into strong learners.

Finally putting the flower together.
Next week, the Brave Bears will continue to learn about how and what makes a good picture. They will help in creating criteria that they can use to assess a good picture. Then, the Brave Bears will explore ways how to take pictures.
