Have a Party With Your Bear Day Activities

November 16th is Have a Party with Your Bear Day. Here are some classroom ideas to celebrate.

Have the children bring their teddy bears to school. Arrange the bears in order from smallest to largest and have a Teddy Bear Parade. Sort them by color, size, or type.

Have Teddy Grahams for snack. Use the Teddy Grahams for counting practice or doing simple addition/subtraction problems.

Use Teddy Bear Counters and Sorting Sets (see below) for math activities (counting, sorting, patterns, addition, subtraction).

Read “The Teddy Bear’s Picnic” by Jimmy Kennedy and have your own Teddy Bear Picnic by serving snack on a blanket.

Teach the children the popular chant below and have them act it out with their teddy bears:

Teddy bear, teddy bear, turn around.
Teddy bear, teddy bear, touch the ground.
Teddy bear, teddy bear, jump up high.
Teddy bear, teddy bear, touch the sky.
Teddy bear, teddy bear, touch your nose.
Teddy bear, teddy bear, touch your toes.
Teddy bear, teddy bear, turn out the light.
Teddy bear, teddy bear, say good night.
