Hibernating Bear Craft

Winter is the BEST season for cute bulletin boards!  I finally got my Hibernating Bear Craft up in my TpT Store!  I made this last year with my little ones, but never had time to get it organized to share with you. :)

Learning about winter animals is a favorite among the little ones, especially hibernating bears...

I decorated the background of my bulletin board with winter trees.  I taped pieces of construction paper together, and then cut them in the shape of triangles, fringed the end, and then layered them to look like a tree.  Of course, a touch of snow to make it feel like winter!

These are some of the winter books I read to the kids to frontload them to write about hibernation.

We added a writing to the bottom of the hibernation craft to tie it in with language arts.  :) 

Grab the template in my Teachers Pay Teachers store. :)
