Title: Bear Card Charades

-Sent in by Jane Hauger from West Virginia, USA


When you're teaching the bear cards, have students play bear card charades. Have a child pick up a reversed bear card and then act out the illustration. Classmates must guess what is being acted by responding in sentence form:


You are taking a shower.

You are a bear taking a shower.

Are you a bear taking a shower?


For my kindergarten, I would make a bear's ears headband for the actors to wear in turn or a pair of mittens to represent the bear's paws.


This activity could also be done with the monkey cards as well.
