Have the kids bring their
favorite bear for a day and act out
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear turn around...
child needs a stuffed bear to do this activity.
Substitute other words/actions for the poem.
Pick your teddy bear
up from the ground,
Then go dancing all around.
Hold him high and hold him low,
As round and round and round you go.
Hold him left and hold him right,
Hold him tight with all your might!
Hold him close and hold him far,
Pretend that he can drive a car.
Hold him in front and hold him in back,
Sit down with him on your lap!
Another Teddy Bear
(This can be chanted as children
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear,
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, touch the ground,
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, reach up high
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, wink one eye,
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, slap your knees,
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, sit down please.
