Letter B, Bear, poems

Go on a BEAR HUNT! Tape bear prints to walls and follow the bear tracks through the halls. They led us to some B treats–a basket of bananas, butterfingers and baby bears.

The Bear Went Over the Mountain
The bear went over the mountain.
The bear went over the mountain.
The bear went over the mountain
To see what he could see.

And what do you think he saw?
What do you think he saw?

The other side of the mountain,
The other side of the mountain,
The other side of the mountain
Was all that he could see.

The Bear Hunt
(an echo chant)

Leader tells everyone to repeat exactly what he says and mimic exactly what he does. Beat hands alternately on knees—this represents you walking down a path looking for a bear.

Leader: Do you want to go on a bear hunt?
Group: Repeats same
Leader: Alright!
Group: Repeats same
Leader: Let’s go.
Group: Repeats same
Leader: What’s that?
Group: Repeats same
Leader:
 That’s a river.
Group: Repeat
Leader: Can’t go over it.
Group: Repeat
Leader: Can’t go under it.
Group: Repeat
Leader: Gotta go through it.
Group: Repeat
Leader: Alright.
Group: Repeat
Leader: Let’s go.
Group: Repeat
(Move as if swimming. Swim eight strokes. Then resume beating the knees with the hands.)


Leader: 
Oh, look!
What’s that?
That’s a bridge.
Can’t go under it.
Can’t go through it.
Gotta go over it.
Alright.
Let’s go.
(Pound chest to make a noise of walking over a bridge. Then resume beating knees.)

Leader:    Oh, look!
What’s that?
That’s a swamp.
Can’t go over it.
Can’t go under it.
Gotta go through it.
Alright.
Let’s go.
(Make a movement with hands as if the grass was high and you’re pushing it to one side. Then resume beating knees.)

Leader:   Oh, look!
What’s that?
That’s mud.
Can’t go over it.
Can’t go under it.
Gotta go through it.
Alright.
Let’s go.
(Make upward movement with hands as if it were hard to pull feet out of the mud. Resume beating knees.)

Leader:    Oh, look!
What’s that?
That’s a tree.
Can’t go under it.
Can’t go over it.
Gotta go up it.
Alright.
Let’s go.

(Make tree climbing motions. Suddenly look up and say:
Leader: 
  Oh, look!
What’s that?

(Reverse motions previously done very quickly—nothing is said.
Down the tree; back on the path; through the mud; back on the path; through the swamp; back on the path; over the bridge; back on the path; across the river; and back on the path.
Leader gives a sigh of relief and wipes his brow.

The Cool Bear Hunt by Dr. Jean is similar to this. The words can be found at http://www.drjean.org

Fuzzy Wuzzy
Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear.
Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair.
Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn’t fuzzy,
Was he?

Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear 
Teddy bear, teddy bear, turn around.
Teddy bear, teddy bear, touch the ground.
Teddy bear, teddy bear, up on tiptoes.
Teddy bear, teddy bear, touch your nose.
Teddy bear, teddy bear, walk to me.
Teddy bear, teddy bear, bend your knee.
Teddy bear, teddy bear, hop around,
Teddy bear, teddy bear, sit on the ground.

Bear March
(same as The Ants Go Marching-change “ants” to “bears”)
The bears are marching one by one, hurrah, hurrah! …..
