Preparation for Storytime Session 14
More teddy bears!
Equipment: books, story bag, teddy bear.
What’s in the story bag? A bear! Bear starts with B. Can we find B on the story mat? What words do we know that start with that sound?
We discuss good books the kids borrowed last week.
SHARE: The Very Itchy Bear by Nick Bland – Bear and Flea are friends who like to go places together. We think of a friend we like to do things with.
Song: If you’re itchy and you know it, have a scratch! 2nd verse: If you’re itchy and you know it, flick a flea!
SHARE: There, There by Sam McBratney and Ivan Bates – Hansie the bear looks after the people he loves. How do we look after people when something is wrong?
Rhyme from last week:
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, turn around!
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, touch the ground.
Teddy Bear, Teddy bear, jump up high.
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, touch the sky.
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, bend down low.
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, touch your toes.
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, turn off the light.
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear, say goodnight.
Game: Hide the bear.
Display library books about bears – especially The Bear in the Cave by Michael Rosen (remember we’re going on a bear hunt ? it’s the same character!)
Evaluation: It was a seriously windy day! Enough said? Scatty we were, and annoyed with each other for sitting in “our spot” on the story mat! But we made it through without bloodshed, despite all the itching.
