I found the most spectacular book today. You know how much I love writing and this book is perfect to teach students about how to generate ideas for writing! Not only that, it is about a polar bear. It's just perfect for this time of year!
I know it's not just me getting excited about new books - am I right? This newly released book is called The Bear Report. It's by Thyra Heder.
Here is where a polar bear suddenly arrives in her living room. ( From visualizing? Reading a book? Watching a Science show on tv?)
Sophie even learns of a few dangers.
Sophie learns a lot of first hand experiences.
Soon it's time to go home.
Even though her homework assignment was limited to 3 ideas/facts, Sophie's new found excitement for learning turns into a passion project! Isn't that the way all learning should be???
I just love this book in every way. It has a great story, fabulous illustrations and is perfect for your writing lessons and/or Arctic studies.
