We finished up our introduction to Octo-bear with a Social Studies unit on needs and wants. We read the story Corduroy by Don Freeman and discussed the differences between a need and a want. The kids did a needs and wants sort to check for understanding and then we made a cute Corduroy art project.
We also worked on bear super sentences when we made a sentence wheel showing who, what, and where. They then put those elements in order to make a super sentence about bears. They worked hard on their neat writing and sentence writing with correct mechanics.
