Brown bear brown bear what do you see?- A classic favourite with children! Rae has always loved this book & been captivated by the illustrations by Eric Carle. The repetition in the text makes it a great book for children to recite! It is also a great book to teach colours.
I decided to let Rae create her own version by getting to paint the animals using different tools found in the house- cotton buds, cotton balls, sponge, spoon, toys, toothbrush, etc. Rae particularly loves Eric Carle’s signature blue horse! While adding the colours on the animal templates, I introduce the naming of the different colours while she was adding the colours to each animal template. This is a great introductory activity to learning word recognition of colours.
