Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?
Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? | Bill Martin
103 posts | 132 read | 3 to read
A big happy frog, a plump purple cat, a handsome blue horse, and a soft yellow duck-- all parade across the pages of this delightful book. Children will immediately respond to Eric Carle's flat, boldly colored collages. Combined with Bill Martin's singsong text, they create unforgettable images of these endearing animals.

The illustrations in this book are so defining that it is eric carle. The repetitiveness in the book keeps it clear to understand for little kids. Perfect book for beginning readers.

Toddlers adore this simple book!!!

And if we ever needed proof that book bans have gotten out of hand in America this book is it. In 2010 the Texas board of ed. confused the author of this book with a philosopher of an almost identical name who teaches (among other things) Marxist theory, and banned this book… scared perhaps that hidden messages would lead their 3 yr olds to reject capitalism????

Spent a whole day with Leander yesterday. While not a grandchild, I spent 3 years straight with him, but missed out on the last 9 months. We were so happy to be together again. He and I read many of Carle‘s books yesterday and Leander talked about how many of them were important to him. What an impact this author has had on so many children.

So sad. Eric Carle died on Sunday. I can‘t tell you how many times I read this to my daughter when she was a toddler. I could say it in my sleep, but she never tired of it. Thank you, Mr. Carle!

Soubhiville Oh no, this is the first I‘ve heard of this. So sad. 2y

This is MF. This is great for DR. This book has won the Indies Picture Book Hall of Fame. It is about animals saying what they see. This book is great for kindergarten to begin reading or first grade to help with fluency.

Ericaj https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/articles/teaching-content/what-dramatic-play... This article lists the benefits of using dramatic reenactment for young students. UDL 5.1 Use multiple media for communication. ESOL strategy #2 2. Promote cooperation (small groups) #UCFLAE3414SP21 2y
Adodd1 This book is so great for preschool-primary grades and can really help students with things like animal and color recognition. Great resource from scholastic! 2y
PatriciaS I love 💕 animal book 📖 great book for teaching vocabulary words colors and for readers theater 🎭 read aloud lessons, and love your review 👍 2y
DrSpalding Scholastic is a high-quality resource and read aloud or storytelling works well along with dramatic reenactment! 2y

Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? 🐻 This MF, S book is a classic book for any elementary classroom. This cute story that I grew up with takes us on a journey through meeting different animals as they explain what each of the sees! This is a great book for primary grades because of the various colors and animals introduced. I see this book is best fit as a storytelling piece. The UDL principle 2.5- illustrate through multiple media...

acassatta is a perfect fit principle for this storytelling piece as we can illustrate the story through puppets. In addition the UDL principle 1.3- offer alternatives for visual information corresponds well with any storytelling book. The ESOL strategy #30 matches well because our storytelling piece involving puppets will encourage the use of diagrams and drawings to identify concepts and relationships seen in the story. 2y
acassatta The following website is the official Eric Carle website. Here we can introduce other forms of literature created by him or learn more about the author. https://eric-carle.com #ucflae3414sp21 2y
PatriciaS Great review 👍 thanks for the wonderful resources too. I love 💕 animal books and sharing that love for animals with our future leaders and they are so much fun to read aloud and teach children great lessons. 2y
DrSpalding Eric Carle‘s website is amazing! You could not have added a better resource. The way you are describing the English learner strategy along with the universal design principle is just right! Using puppets for storytelling as you have seen in class, works quite well. 2y

Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? By Bill Martin Jr. and Eric Carle is a clever and captivating rhyming book that kids can‘t get enough of. The colorful animals mentioned keep them enticed in the book and the repetition keeps them engaged. UDL 2.2 is present because it keeps a persistent structure throughout. This link is a nice rhythmic reading of the book. https://youtu.be/HaDDsT9IAWc

DrSpalding More detail needed. No teaching strategy? 2y

This F book is a classic for any early reader. It starts with a brown bear and what he sees. From then on, all of those different animals see other things. The book uses color and rhyming that will get any young reader interested in finding out what they will see next! This is a great book to use for SR, especially with younger students! It is easy to follow along with and can get the students to read with the teacher. #UCFLAE3414SP20

MaddyJ https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/class-bear-boo... - This is a resource to creating your own Class Bear Book (something I cannot wait to do)! UDL principle 8.3 (Foster collaboration and community) and EL 26 (Maintain a library of supplementary books and workbooks written in
simple English, which offer additional illustrations for problems) would be accomplished by using this book and creating your own class book!

DrSpalding Shared reading is an excellent strategy and your resource, encouraging the creation of a text innovation is fantastic. Create class books often with your students. I always tried to make enough so that at the end of the year every child could go home with a class book created by their peers.❤️📚 3y

There isn‘t a specific quote I enjoy about this book because there is a lot of repetition. I think a teacher should read the “what do you see” in the same rhythm each time to create almost a song effect to this book.

blurb
Lf196117

I would only read this book to an infant or toddler classroom. It‘s too easy for anyone over. A teacher could use silly voices for each animal to make it a more enjoyable read for the students.

This is a perfect read aloud to infants and toddlers. This book has a consistent repetition that if read enough, a child could remember it and read it back to you. In the end, it shows all the animals together, allowing children to create connections to the beginning and end of the book.

“Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?” was written by Bill Martin in 1967. This book is a top hit at the CDC and I really enjoy reading it to the children as well. It discusses animals and the colors associated with them! I recommend this book for any child !

My favorite part about this book are the illustrations of the animals.

This is a very educational book to read younger children because there are a lot of colors as well as a lot of repetition so hopefully kids can catch on to the book and read along with the teacher. I love how there are so many different kinds of animals as well.

This RF by Bill Martin Jr is a great read for young children. This book is illustrated by Eric Carle. It‘s a informative piece of literature for kindergarteners all the way up to 2nd grade. This book teaches young children animals and colors. This would be a great RA for younger grades. https://billmartinjr.com/bill_martin UDL: 1.1 ESOL 17 #UCFLAE3414SU19

Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See by Bill Martin Jr and Illustrated by Eric Carl is a children Fictional PB designed to help primary grade students learn about rhyming and associating colors. This book is perfect for a CR. Here is a a resource perfect for this text http://www.hubbardscupboard.org/brown-bear-brown-bear I would use UDL strategy 7.2 and ESL #5 for this lesson. #UCFLAE3414SU19

alexialovesmith Utilizing a CR in the classroom with this book is such a great idea! 3y
DrSpalding Some of your posts need more detail. Choral reading could work well and storytelling as we observed, works well with these books. 3y
