Just recently we read the story “Bear Snores On” and then the next week we read another story with Bear and his friends called “Bear Stays Up For Christmas”.  We looked at and discussed the similarities and differences in think-pair-share partners between the two books.  Then as a class we filled out a venn diagram that displayed what we knew.

Then we went back into the text “Bear Stays Up For Christmas” and looked at things that Bear and his friends did for Christmas; such as decorate and wrap presents.  Then for a writing activity we wrote and illustrated what we thought about when we think about Christmas.
