Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear. . .

It was a rainy morning – the perfect weather to curl up with a good book and a furry friend at storytime.  This morning’s storytime was all about teddy bears.

OPENING SONG: The More We Get Together


BOOK 1: Old Bear by Kevin Henkes
A book with enchanting pictures.  Children will love to find bear taking a nap, curled up in a tulip; or watching as it rains blueberries.

ACTION RHYME: Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear

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.

SONG: Teddy Bear Playtime from Hap Palmer’s CD So Big
Everyone danced with their teddy bears (or other favorite stuffed animal friend).

BOOK 2: Brown Bear Brown Bear What Do You See? by Bill Martin
A classic favorite.  Instead of reading the book, I used a flannel board.
Pieces for flannel can be found on DLTK’s website .

Ten in the Bed Templates

There were 10 in the bed and the little one said,
‘Roll over, roll over.’ (roll hands)
So they all rolled over and 1 fell out. Boom!

Then there were 9 in the bed and the little one said,
‘Roll over, roll over.’ (roll hands)

Last verse
Then there was 1 in the bed and the little one said,
‘Good night!’

RHYME: Teddy Wore His Red Shirt
Tune: “Mary Wore Her Red Dress”

Teddy wore his red shirt, red shirt, red shirt
Teddy wore his red shirt all day long.
Teddy wore his blue pants….
Teddy wore his yellow hat….
Teddy wore his green socks….
Teddy wore his black shoes….

CLOSING SONG: We Wave Goodbye Like This
