Orange Pear Apple Bear
Ms. Eileen's storytimers had a fun morning talking about apples and, taking a cue from Emily Gravett's "Orange Pear Apple Bear", the kids made their own Blue Cat Apple Hat stories. She provided cut outs of cats, apples, and hats, plus colors, and asked the kids to make a collage and tell their own story based on the words. Ms. Eileen tells us that this fun (and educational) activity will work seasonally using words such as: Ghost Leaf Orange Pumpkin White Witch Black Cat Spider Newt, combined with rhyming words like Cat and Hat, or Bear and Pear. Have fun. And check out "Orange Pear Apple Bear". Beautifully illustrated and destined to become a classic.
