most famous teddy bear rhymes and children love it.
Suggestion: If conducting this activity at a preschool or child care
facility plan ahead to have children bring their favorite teddy bear
for show and tell.
It would also be fun to end the activity reading a book and/or a short video about a teddy bear or fairy tale bear characters. Here are suggestion with existing activities:
Winnie the Pooh or Corduroy are obvious choices or a fairy tale: Goldilocks and the Three Bears with various activities. The craft activities suggested have various learning activities.
Activity #1 Nursery Rhyme-Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear
Print, read from screen and sing the nursery rhyme poster in the link provided. Make sure children understand the meaning of all the words. Identify colors and images in the picture. To aid you in the presentation you read and sing the rhyme with Teddy Bear craft in color. Later the children can do the black and white version.
Tell the children they are going to do fun activities with teddy bears and later read the rhyme again with the surprises they will make.
Children under 2 will benefit greatly from singing, using puppets,
stuffed animals, and/or finger plays with nursery rhymes.
