Bear Stays Up for Christmas by Karma Wilson ~ Early Literacy

Bear Stays Up for Christmas by Karma Wilson is my new favorite Christmas story about friendship, teamwork and the gift of giving.  Bear is generous, kindhearted and is surrounded by good friends who support him.  Santa comes into play when he recognizes Bear's kindness and leaves him a special gift for Christmas.  This is a lovable book that will please every child.

I was so delighted with this book that I made a 38 page upload for Teachers Pay Teachers that focuses on best practices in early literacy~tuning into new words, shades of meaning, character thoughts, feelings, want, needs and actions, CVC word segmenting and blending and story sequencing.  If you are interested in this unit, click {HERE}.

Happy Reading!
