“Bear Facts” – Level C

The first songbook I created was Bear Facts, and to this day it is one of my most popular titles! The repeated pattern and echoing invites the early reader to join in singing the lyrics—a truly successful learning experience! I’ve determined the Fountas & Pinnell Reading Level for this title to be Level D based on the characteristics I’ve noted below. It would be most appropriate for ages 4 – 6 and Kindergarten readers. (Of course, PreK through first graders love this book!)

Some longer sentences (some with more than six words)

2 – 3 lines of text per page

repetition throughout

I have identified the various teaching points when using Bear Facts during your Shared Reading lessons below. *Please note my Blog dated October 25th at normagentner.com as to how to plan out your week with one of my Songbooks of Science!
