I would never have dreamt that I could enjoy Winnie the Pooh like I have; our whole family have enjoyed it.  Daniel and Nomi enjoyed the stories, Jess and Josh though enjoyed the play with words.  AA Milne was very clever!

 

Not long ago we finished reading two Pooh Bear books as our read alouds, then co-incidentally and accidentally we taped a movie “A bear called Winnie” which is the true story which was the inspiration for Pooh Bear.

 

This week the kids sat down and watched the movie.  We then brainstormed various writing opportunities that we could pursue between the two books and the movie.  This is the list we came up with:

 

 

Picture / Map showing the setting

Retelling of the Real story

Retelling of my favourite story

Copy write of my favourite poem

Character study on a character from book or movie

Research on Black Bears

Tell me something funny

Copy write a quote

Explain a concept Pooh tried to explain

Do any Scriptures come to mind?

Write your own Pooh Bear story (using Pooh Bear characters, your own setting/plot)

Word Map / Picture map of Winnie’s journey (real bear)

Acrostic Poem

Poster to tell people about the book

Pictures telling the story – Beginning / Middle / End

Book review for newspaper

Create a Game

Copy draw a picture

Draw your own picture

Femo / modelling clay of character

 

Each child has chosen at least 5 of these (some duplicate with each other) and we are going to create a family lapbook on Pooh Bear.

 

I am very excited about this project.  It is relevant to what the kids are doing in their days.  It makes room for Daniel who is learning to read/write and for Josh who can think deeply and communicate this way and for the girls inbetween.  It is making a memory for them.  We will have a book to keep forever of our time with Winnie the Pooh!
