It seems to happen quite often this year that we seem to run out of time near the end of the day. We didn't have time today to do our final circle time/large motor activities including the teddy bear bounce and the teddy bear dance - we were having so much fun doing our teddy bear picnic. I told the kids I would post the words to the dance and maybe they could do the dance at home. You might want to do the bear toss at home too - just get a small blanket or bath towel and put the bear in the middle, hold the corners with your child and toss the bear in the air and try to catch it again. Here are two songs.
Teddy bear, teddy bear, turn around.
Teddy bear, teddy bear, touch the ground.
Teddy bear, dance on your toes.
Teddy bear, teddy bear, touch your nose.
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 good night.
TEDDY BEAR DANCE (to the tune of Twinkle, twinkle, little star)
Pick your bear up off the ground,
Then go dancing all around.
Hold him high and hold him low.
Twirl him fast, and twirl him slow.
Round and round and round you go.
Now hug him tight, don't let him go.
