Bear Shadow Writing Prompts

After reading the book, children can use these two ideas for related writing activities.

  • Grades: PreK–K, 1–2

Curriculum Crossovers:

  1. 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.

  2. 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?
