Teddy Bear Week 2018

We will be having a Teddy Bear Party this first week in February!
(The themes on the calendar have been changed – this week is Teddy Bear Week and next week Friendship Week).

The children can bring their favorite stuffed animal for a picnic in the blocks area.  We will have blankets and little snacks to share with our favorite animal friends.
(Orcas will have their picnic on Wednesday, Bears on Thursday, Eagles on Friday).

We will be talking about places we like to go when they go for walks in the neighborhood.  As we all know Bear likes to go to the Library.  He will surprise the children with other places he likes to go.

As you talk with your child about places in the neighborhood, you can also talk about the people in the neighborhood they see.  You can ask them questions about the people and places in their neighborhood.  What jobs are people doing?  Where do they like to go to play, to eat, to be with their friends?  It is fun to hear what they think about the world around them.


Here is a cave (make a fist),
Inside is a bear (put a thumb inside fist).
Now he comes out
To get some fresh air (pop out thumb).
He stays out all summer
In sunshine and heat.
He hunts in the forest
For berries to eat (move thumb in circle).
When snow starts to fall,
He hurries inside
His warm little cave,
And there he will hide (put thumb back inside fist).
Snow covers the cave
Like a fluffy white rug.
Inside the bear sleeps
All cozy and snug (cover fist with other hand).

Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear turn around
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear touch the ground
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear show your shoe
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear down goes you.

Wishy Washy Washer Woman
Way down in the jungle where nobody goes
Theres a wishy washy washer woman washing her clothes
She goes – oooh aaaaah, ooooh, aaaaah
That’s how the washer woman washes her clothes
Waddily ah-cha a goochie goochie gooh
Waddily ah-cha a goochie goochie gooh
That’s how the washer woman washes her clothes
