Bear Party Fun!

This month in Room 1 has been “beary” busy as we have been discovering the wonderful world of Corduroy! Centering around the lovable story by Don Freeman, we have been learning how to retell stories, lace, draw lines and patterns, stamp, paint and create our own adventure using characters we know, all under the guise of having fun with our friend Corduroy! To culminate our time with our fuzzy friend, we had a Bear Party! We made bear hats, button necklaces, bear hand puppets, button frames, played with small bears and their dens, ate Teddy Grahams (of course) and had a special snuggle area with pillows and plenty of bear books to go around. We then had the immense privilege of having the author of many new Corduroy books, B. G. Hennessy, come and read to us! We went on a bear hunt using the incredibly fun Greg & Steve song and ended our time watching the Corduroy movie with our own teddy bears! It has been such a great first month in Room 1 and there are so many more adventures in store, we can “bearly stand it! 😉
