Along with reading Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See? by Bill Martin, Jr., we enjoyed a colorful pop-up book titled Colors pop-up Peekaboo! This book appeals to infants and toddlers, primarily for color identification and three-dimensional appeal. Each page focused on a different color with a special friend hiding behind a peekaboo flap. The elements of guessing and the colorful visuals made this the perfect book to establish today’s theme!
For reinforcement, we repeated Brown Bear, Brown Bear…in a flannel story. The babies were drawn to the colors and shapes as I placed each animal in the story on the flannel board. I like using repetition and rhyme to create patterns that are easily recognizable and enhance visual and verbal development.
BROWN BEAR FLANNEL STORY:
OUR NURSERY RHYME:
“Little Boy Blue”
Little Boy Blue, come blow your horn!
The sheep’s in the meadow,
The cows in the corn.
Where is the little boy who looks after the sheep?
He’s under the haystack, fast asleep.
Will you wake him? No, not I!
