Matching Picture Cards to A Book...Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See?

I introduced this Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See? matching activity (that I made for O almost 3 years ago...time flies!) to E this week.  She LOVED it!

To make the activity, I took a picture of each page of the book.  I printed the pictures (wallet size) and laminated them. 

To do the activity, I read the book to E and I asked her to find the picture of each animal before I turned the page (while I was reading the 2nd page telling the animal that she would see next).  After I turned the page, she matched the picture to the animal on the page.  She LOVED this activity...until she was distracted by a pair of fancy high heeled "toos" (you can see them in the background of the 2nd picture).  I think this is an activity that my little animal lover is going to enjoy for a while, and I love that I have so many activities already made and ready for her!


  1. great idea. I think that the little girls could even do this. I don't have that book, but another I think I'll try it with.

  2. Love the idea. We love all of Eric Carle's books too.
    Thanks for sharing,

  3. I love that book and this sounds like a great activity. Thank you!

  4. It's so great that you have activities to go along with reading a book!

  5. Great idea! My girls are HUGE Brown Bear, Brown Bear fans :)
