Brown Bear Brown Bear Patterning
Everyone loves the classic children's story Brown Bear Brown Bear written by Bill Martin Jr and illustrated by Eric Carle. We read it every year in preschool and the children love the repetitive text of the story. This leads us into a discussion of patterning and how patterns repeat. I created some fun patterning activities based on the endearing and colorful Brown Bear characters from this beloved book.
