Going on a Bear Hunt is an action story children do in class as a transition, fun circle activity, or when they are waiting for events to happen at school. There are several versions and different books with this simple story, but the one I like best is by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury. The family in this book appears to have so much fun finding a bear and running home to lock the door when they do. Tomorrow, Tonya Dirksen at the Strings, Keys, and Melodies blog will have a song video for this well-known children’s story, Going on a Bear Hunt.
If you know this story, it is fun to change the repetitive lines to fit a car trip, holiday theme, or places you take your children. Children will have suggestions for fun ideas, but of course, the same story over and over will also delight.
My free PDF today includes story sequencing, a writing frame for children to make a similar story, a story mapping page, and answer keys.
