Sing (To the tune of "If you’re happy and you know it")

If you want to hear a story, clap your hands
If you want to hear a story, clap your hands
If you want to hear a story, if you want to hear a story, if you want to hear a story, clap your hands.

More verses: Stomp your feet, spin around, do all three, sit right down.

Action Rhyme- Little Brown Bear

A little brown bear (pat hands on knees)
went in search of some honey (put hand to head)
Isn’t it funny, a bear wanting honey?
He sniffed at the breeze (sniff)
He listened for some bees (put hand to ear)
And wouldn’t you believe it (shake finger)
He even climbed trees (move hands up and down)

Fingerplay- Two Little Black Bears

Two little black bears sitting on a hill,
One named Jack and one named Jill,
Run away Jack, run away Jill.
Come back jack, come back Jill.

Two little black bears digging in the snow
One named Fast and one named Slow...

Two little black bears feeling very proud
One named Quiet and one named Loud..

Rhyming Song-  Grizzly Bears are Big and Brown (Tune of Mary Had a Little Lamb)

Grizzly bears are big and brown,
big and brown, big and brown.
Grizzly bears are big and brown
and live in the woods.

Polar bears are soft and white.
soft and white, soft and white
Polar bears are soft and white
and live where it is cold.

Teddy bears are just my size,
just my size, just my size,
Teddy bears are just my size
to cuddle with at night.
