Teaching Resources for Hibernating Animals

Hibernating Word List for writing and word play. It's a fun unit with early learners.
This post has been updated. The original post had errors in it and I cannot apologize enough. I have learned there are animals that hibernate completely "for the winter" and then there are animals who "sleep" mostly during the winter, but don't actually hibernate. As with everything we do, we learn, we fix it, we pick ourselves up, and move forward knowing better. We teach children the value in mistakes, and I believe it and live it. That being said...here is my updated word card.

BUT, I'm sure somewhere someone is reading this and it's cold outside and maybe even snowing.  Choosing a book about hibernation can add to the fun. I LOVE the Bear books, so of course, Bear Sleeps On is a favorite. I also think Hibernation Station is cute, as well. Most of the hibernation books can be used for a empathy or friendship theme. Most of the picture books talk about bear being sleepy and wanting to go to sleep. Children can easily understand bears feelings and show empathy for his problem.

Other picture books can be about other forest animals missing their friend bear while he hibernates. Such fun connections for early learners.

This activity can be used throughout the winter. Putting this word card in the writing can create writing topics or help with vocabulary for a story. Words can be used for activities with alphabetical order, syllables, habitats, types of hibernation and many more.

Have fun and stay warm!
