Pre-K Storytime 12-29-11 Teddy Bears

Yesterday we had some fun with teddy bears.  I have a nice collection of teddy bears started for storytime but need more to make a full set.  If you have any teddy bears you're not attached to and need a home for, I would welcome them!

Memory Box:  G  (yes, it was a big letter G)

Game: Famous teddy bears.  We identified some famous teddy bears like Michael's bear from Peter Pan, Paddington Bear, Teddy Ruxpin (just for fun LOL), and the most famous stuffed bear of all, Winnie the Pooh.

Book:  My Bear Griz by Suzanne McGinness.  Billy goes on adventures with his bear Griz who is really his teddy bear.  The big G (from our memory box) appears in this book.

Book:  Teddy Bears, Teddy Bears by Harriet Ziefert.  All the kids got a teddy bear to move like the bears in this classic rhyme, "Teddy bears, teddy bears, turn around...." and so on.

Book:  Where's My Teddy? by Jez Alborough.  When a small boy named Eddie goes searching for his lost teddy in the dark woods, he comes across a gigantic bear with a similar problem.  I think this book is really funny, but I'm not sure if it went over the kids' heads a little bit.  Book reviews recommend it for Pre-S/ ages 2-5.

Movement: "Teddy Bear Playtime".  All the kids had a teddy bear and practiced throwing and catching, balancing, and identifying body parts.
