Baby Bear’s Books by Jane Yolen

Schema: Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Text to Self Connections: wanting a book before bed, saying the words from memory with whoever is reading the book to you, telling the story just by looking at the pictures, sitting in laps and reading, honey cakes mentioned in many stories about bears and honey, and wanting a story read over again.

Text-to-text connections: Hansel and Gretel, Gingerbread Man, Winnie the Pooh, Berenstain Bears

Predicting: Ask students to fill in the word that they predict will be next with the rhyming text.

Synthesis:  I am synthesizing that reading books at anytime of the day is a good thing.  I am also synthesizing that when Mama or Papa bears reads to the little bears, that the little bears feel loved.
