Bears Storytime November 28

Today was all about bears! Teddy bears, panda bears, polar bears, cubs, and more!

Hello, How Are you? by Dr. Jean

Bears by Carey Molter

Baby Bear, Baby Bear, What Do you See? by Bill Martin, Jr.

Song: I See a Barefoot Bear on Brent Holmes' CD Bear Tunes for Kids. I have felt squares with numbers on them. I laid 0-10 in a circle. We started out standing on one number, then walking around in the circle, changing direction, dancing in the middle, jumping around the circle, and more. I styled it a bit like a square dance of sorts.

Teddy Bear (I acted this out while holding a puppet)
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, turn around.
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, touch the ground.
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, show your shoe.
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, that will do.
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, go upstairs.
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, reach in the air.
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, turn around.
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, sit on the ground.

It's the Bear by Jez Alborough

Then we acted out the song/book "Going on a Bear Hunt." We went AROUND our puppet tree, AROUND a "mountain" (chairs), THROUGH a river (blue felt tied to bookshelves that one can crawl under/through), INTO a cave, saw the bear, and went back.

Poem: Polar Bear on page 17 in William Jay Smith's Bear in Mind: A Book of Bear Poems

Goodbye Songs: It is Time to Say Goodbye and
Wave your feet goodbye.
Wave your knees goodbye.
Wave your hips goodbye.
Wave your shoulders goodbye.
Wave your hands and say "goodbye."

We ran out of time for Copy Me, Copycub by Richard Evans. I had expected this, however.

NEXT WEEK we will read and dance to some of Jenna's favorites that were published in 2012.
