Bear Story Time

The librarian came to our school for story time and focused on bears. 

She used the bear and the bee puppet for this rhyme:
Here is a Bear
Here is a bear, the bear is fuzzy; Here is a bee, the bee is buzzy.
The bee makes honey in a hollow tree.
The bear likes to eat honey you see.
Here comes the bear, Oops! There he goes.
The little bee stung the bear right on his nose.


She's reading Where's My Teddy? by Jez Alborough
This book was really cute and wonderful for predicting.

She also used laminated bear stick puppets for each child to sing the song, The Bear Went over the Mountain:
Oh, the bear went over the mountain, the bear went over the mountain.
The bear went over the mountain, to see what he could see.
And what do you think he saw? And what do you think he saw?
The other side of the mountain, the other side of the mountain.
The other side of the mountain, was all that he could see.
So, he went back over the mountain, he went back over the mountain,
He went back over the mountain, so very happily.

She also used some props to go on a bear hunt:
Going on a bear hunt, leaving right away,
Gonna find a bear if it takes all day.
1. Did we bring the map? Yes, we brought the map.
2. Did we bring the flashlight? Yes, we brought the flashlight.
3. Did we bring our lunch? Yes, we brought our lunch.
4. Did we bring the honey? Yes, we brought the honey.
5. Did we bring the camera? Yes, we brought the camera.
Ready for a bear hunt! Now, let's go!

And, we also sang the song, If you're happy and you know it doing these actions:
Clap your claws...
Stomp your paws...
Give a growl...
Do all three!

And one last rhyme:
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, climb the stairs. Teddy bear, teddy bear, say your prayers.
Teddy bear, teddy bear, turn out the light. Teddy bear, teddy bear, say goodnight.

Below are some of the books that she read and/or recommended about bears.
