Baby and Toddler Bear Storyhour, Wednesday, February 15 @ 10:30

Book: Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? I used Kiz Club Brown Bear figures. In earlier years, I had hung them randomly around the room, but this year I hung them on the clothesline and, very repetitively, recited, "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, what do you see?" taking each one down by turns and introducing them to the audience.  That worked a lot better -- they actually knew what to look for and say.
Play: Either
  • Five fuzzy teddy bears are in their bed. "Now go to sleep!" their mama said. But one escaped and down the hall he fled! Now 4 fuzzy teddy bears are ready for bed.  
  • "Five bears in the bed and the little one said, roll over, roll over." The babies seemed to prefer the teddy bears on the wall today -- maybe the idea of so many bears falling helplessly to the ground unnerved them. 
Where's My Teddy by Jez Alborough.  A tiny bit hard for them.
Bear Wants More by Karma Wilson.  The moms tried to help out, and quite a few of them new the baby signing signal for 'more.'
Busy Baby Bears by Schindel.    
Didn't get to:
Book: The Big Hungry Bear by Don and Audrew Wood. A very cute little readaloud. I went around the room offering the babies imaginary strawberries to nibble on. Note to self, don't forget your giant teddy bear and your tiny little mouse fingerpuppet next time.
Bearobics by Vic Parker. This bouncy, cheerful read is a lot of fun. This year I distributed the noisy toys so the babies could join in, but it kind of distracted them.  I think next year I'll just use more maracas
Pink seagull, blue lizard, green turtle, orange alligator, yellow butterfly and gray snake

Song: Teddy Bear, of course!

  4. I think what you said made a great deal of sense.
    However, consider this, suppose you typed a catchier
    post title? I ain't suggesting your information is not solid.,
    but what if you added something that makes people desire more?
    I mean "Baby and Toddler Bear Storyhour, Wednesday, February 25 @ 10:30"
    is a little boring. You could look at Yahoo's home page and note how
    they create news headlines to grab people to open the links.
    You might try adding a video or a picture or two to get readers excited about
    everything've written. In my opinion, it could bring your blog a little livelier.
