Bear Shadow Writing Prompts
After reading the book, children can use these two ideas for related writing activities.
- Grades: PreK–K, 1–2
- The children can write stories about their shadows. Possible topics are:
How their shadow became attached to them.
The time their shadow got away or they lost it.
- Help the children look through catalogs and find pictures of various window coverings. Look for some that are light-blocking such as dark shades, some that are light-filtering such as some vertical blinds. How much light does each material allow to pass through?
