Have you ever though of something to do with your daycare kids...and thought this would be a really cool thing to do with them...and that's all you thought about it. Then, you do it and it comes out far better than what you pictured in your mind.....yep, that's what happened to me. I thought we would make a simple little Brown Bear, Brown Bear Book ...no big deal, pretty fun and something they can keep for the rest of their lives.
So we made a Brown Bear, Brown Bear Book for Letter B - Bubba Bear. I had the kids color each one of the animals the color it should be and then I made the sentence strips on the computer using Microsoft Word.

This is the cover of the book 

 Brown Bear
 Red Bird

 Yellow Duck
Blue Horse

Green Frog
Purple Cat

White Dog

Black Sheep
Gold fish


At the end, we added all the animals again with sentence strips and small picture card. This is the first page of them .....

 And this is the second page of them ....

Here is the last page in the book that they kids made. 

We then made a bear sack to hold our picture cards in, these cards are so the kids can find the corresponding animal card to the animal in the book. It's always more fun to make something that the kids can enjoy and yet learn from at the same time.

And our picture cards, bear sacks and books.

If you would like to make one of these books with your daycare kids, follow this link to my 4shared account here. In the file you will find the links with all the websites used for this book. The kids were very excited to see their pictures that we've colored over the last few days, and then to see them in a book that is their very own !
