To finish off color week We read the story Brown Bear, Brown Bear by Bill Martin Jr & Eric Carle.  We recreated the sequence of the story by making paper bag puppets of the brown bear with the other animal characters in the story.  You can get the paper bag puppets from Mrs. Ricca’s Kindergarten.


We read the stories “Brown Bear, Brown Bear” and “Mouse Paint” and learned more color words.  We then created brown bear paper bag puppets and learned about mixing colors with a Mouse Paint painting activity.

We started our new unit on friends and feelings and to start us off we created a circle map on friends.  Students were given the opportunity to illustrate our ideas as we came up with them.

Then we read the story The Little Red Hen and discussed on how the characters were not good friends.  We used Popsicle stick puppets to retell the story as a whole group and students created their own Popsicle stick puppets.  Then during free choice centers they got to retell the centers with their friends.

The next day we used sequence cards to put the story back in the correct order.  Then students worked on cutting and pasting their sequence cards onto construction paper.

Little Red Hen sequence cards and character printouts found here.


We read the story There’s a Billy Goat in the Garden in big book form.  We made 3 popsicle stick puppets from characters in the story and retold the story with the puppets.

We also have continued our study on characters in books that we read, and students wrote about their favorite character, and we discussed why they were our favorite characters.
