Favorite Fingerplays and Action Songs
A Little Brown Bear
A little brown bear, went in search of some honey (shade eyes with hand)
Isn't it funny, a bear wanting honey? (shrug shoulders)
He sniffed at the breeze (lift head and pretend to sniff)
And listened for bees (hold hand to ear)
And wouldn't you believe it, (shake index finger)
He even climbed trees! (pretend to climb) 

If I Were....
If I were a happy bear, I’d go ha! ha! ha! (laugh)
If I were a sad bear, I’d go boo, hoo, hoo! (rub eyes)
If I were a cranky bear, I’d go stomp,stomp, stomp! (stomp feet)
If I were a scared bear, I’d go AHH! AHH! AHH! (scream)
If I were a tired bear, I’d go zzz zzz zzz (pretend to sleep)

Early Literacy Tip of the Day
Children need repetition! Stories with words that repeat help children learn new words. And kids love to hear stories over and over.
