The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear

Gathering Activity: We read books together about Bears.

Circle Time: We read The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear by Don Wood.  We did finger plays and sang songs about mice and bears.

Art Activity: Cute as a Button Strawberries
Materials Needed: strawberry shape cut out of poster board , buttons, and green foam piece cut into shape of strawberry topper, glue, foam paint brushes

Directions: Paint the strawberry shapes red.  Glue on buttons and foam topper.  Allow to dry.

Snack: Red Ripe Strawberries and Cinnamon Bread Bears 

Playtime Activity:

Strawberry Scented Playdough (We tripled this recipe, and made ahead of time, for our 7 kids).

We had free exploration with cookie cutters and play dough tools.

I love how you have a whole series of activities to go with the book. The cinnamon bear looks delicious along with the strawberries. The strawberry with buttons is super cute!
