Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See?
Concept: Pattern Book and Color Book
I will begin by reading the title and showing the students the book cover. I would ask the students if they have ever read the book Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See before. I would also ask the students what they think they might learn from this book. Before I start, I will also review colors. I would ask the students if they could find something red. Then I would call on a student who raises their hand and let them tell me what they see that is red. I would do this for all the colors that are in the book.
I will read the book to the children while pointing at each word as I say it. I will then ask the students what they see in the picture. Next, I would read the book again and have the students read along with me.
After we have read the story, I will pass out a paper where I put their name at the top asking them what they see. For example, “(Student’s Name), (Student’s Name) what do you see?” Then, they will individually create their own page of a book which depicts an animal in a certain color. They will then write “I see a (color) (animal) looking at me.” The students will be able to be creative and use crayons, markers, or any other medium available to complete their book page. When binding the book, I would put the student’s names in alphabetical order. I would let the students know this so they can see how names are placed alphabetically. Students then could learn the concept of pattern, color, and some of the alphabet.
