Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear?
by Bill Martin, Jr. & Eric Carle

Color of the Week


We are still working on White this week.
Continue to focus on the white of winter and go on an exploration
around your house looking for items that are white. Start in the kitchen and
see if there are any food items that are white. Appliances? Furniture?
Then go through the different rooms in your house.
Make it a fun scavenger hunt for “white” things in your home!

Song/Nursery Rhyme of the Week

Here are two fun songs by Jean Warren:

Tune: “Mary Had a Little Lamb”
Polar Bear walks ‘cross the snow,
‘Cross the snow, ‘cross the snow,
Polar Bear walks ‘cross the snow,
Moving very slow.
Polar Bear starts to run real fast,
Run real fast, run real fast.
Polar Bear starts to run real fast,
Now he’s home at last!

Tune: “Did You Ever See A Lassie?”
Did you ever see a polar bear,
A polar bear, a polar bear?
Did you ever see a polar bear
Sliding on ice?
He slips and slides,
He twirls and glides.
Did you ever see a polar bear,
Sliding on ice?

Letter of the Week

H for Hear
“Every letter makes a sound, H says huh!”
This is a fun sound to make. It’s almost silent.
To help yourself and your child make the sound,
put the palm of your hand in front of your mouth and
you will be able to feel your breath on your hand when you make the “huh” sound.
Show your child by doing it on their hand and then have them do it on their own!

Snack of the Week

Make little polar bears!
Slice bananas & put little mini chocolate chips
On the polar bear’s face for eyes and a nose!
You can use smaller pieces of bananas for the ears.


If you want a larger snack, use a piece of toast for the face.
A banana for the snout and ears.
Chocolate chips for the eyes and nose.
A little piece of a pretzel for the mouth.
Come over to our Facebook page and share your creations!
Have fun with this!

Art Project of the Week

Get some blue paper & white chalk.
Have your child draw white snow,
white snow-covered mountains, trees, etc.
You can make one first as an example to show them.
And then let them be the artist to create their own!

Field Trip of the Week

In place of a field trip, act out the story with animal noises.
Check out this reading of the story for ideas on how you
can make this an interactive read full of different voices
and animal sounds with your little sprout.
