Teddy Bears

"Bears on Shelves" is a worksheet that helps the children learn sorting. Sorting and classifying requires analytical and reasoning skills.   As the children completed this worksheet, I asked him (her) to discuss the reasoning behind the sorting they were doing.
"Off to School" is a maze that helps encourage pre-writing and problem solving skills.
Doing simple mazes is one way to help children develop the small muscles needed to write.
Have children trace the path through the maze with a finger first and then with a crayon, pencil or marker.

With this craft I read "Biscuit and the Lost Teddy Bear" by Alyssa Satin Capucilli.

With this craft I read "A Pocket for Corduroy" by Don Freeman.  
I cut out a bear, the kids colored it and then glued on a purple pocket.

I'm a little Teddy Bear (song)
Tune: I'm a little tea pot
I'm a little teddy bear,
cute and sweet,
I'm soft and brown right
down to my feet.

We took turns holding the teddy bear while we sang the above song.
