Bear Books (by Karma Wilson) graphic organizers

I LOVE the Bear series by Karma Wilson. I read them to my son and to my first graders and they both love the stories just as much as I do! Reading these books present so many teachable moments.

In this book series study, you will find graphic organizers for five different books in this series.
