Jesse Bear Activities and Lapbook
by Nancy White Carlstrom
We love Jesse Bear at our house and I wanted to share some of the activities we’ve done to go along with this sweet little book!
Craft: We made a cute little dress up bear awhile back and I thought it would be perfect for this activity so we got him back out. It’s simply a bear printed out on brown cardstock then laminated. I put Velcro dots on his body then cutout clothes from colorful felt. It’s easy to dress him as you just stick them on!
Here is a cute paper bear we found at
Danielle’s Place (Edited: Sorry, looks like she removed the free Bear Printables!):
Lapbook: We made this cute lapbook for our study this week as well. You can find all of these printables for this lapbook on Homeschool Share.
Find the bear: One of our favorite games was the find the bear activity. I hid the little bears all over the room and she had to find them. Although it was too simple for her, but she really had a good time!
Rhyming Words: My son helped her do the rhyming words activity. He did really well considering many of the words sound the same but are not spelled the same.
Math: Next we got out our Add It! Game and used counting bears to do a little simple math:
