While teaching 1st grade, I enjoyed teaching thematically! All of my read-a-loud books, centers, crafts and so on where based off of one theme. And I really felt that my students enjoyed it and LEARNED while teaching this way! So, if it worked for them, I was hoping it would work for my lil Jackson!

So back in January, we decided to learn about bears. This was my first attempt to preschool homeschooling, so I didn't take as many pictures/videos. But I hope this gives you some ideas to do with your little learner!
|B-erries and B-ananas on a stick for B-reakfast! Even touched on making a pattern!|
I just used a circle cookie cutter for the face, them rolled 2 small balls and flatten them for the ears. We even added nose (rolled ball in the middle)
For the frosting, I just used a plastic baggie with a small hole cut in the corner. Jackson squeezed out the chocolate frosting to make "fur" and I added the face!
Sure was a yummy treat!
