Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Do you like baby bear? - Section 1: Warm Up


Making connections with any background knowledge is important to building an academic foundation.  I thought that using the T Chart and discussing all the babies we know about would be good for discussion on what we knew about and had in common.  I hear stories every day about the funny thing their babies do.  I then thought it would be fun to see a video about real baby bears playing.  I felt the students could relate to playing outside just like the bears did. Babies tend to be a favorite with my students no matter if it is their baby or an animal baby. I felt this also was a great "hook" to grab their attention and get them interested in hearing the story.
