Two Little Brown Bears
Two little brown bears sitting on a hill.
One named Jack and the other named Jill.
Run away Jack. Run away Jill.
Come back Jack! Come back Jill!

Two little brown bears digging in the snow.
One named Fast and the other named Slow.
Dig, dig, dig Fast and dig, dig, dig Slow!
Dig, dig, dig Fast and dig, dig, dig Slow!

Two little brown bears sitting in a cave.
One named Lucy and the other named Dave.
Go to sleep Lucy. Go to sleep Dave.
Wake up Lucy! Wake up Dave!

Bears! Bears! Bears!
Grizzly bears are big and brown, big and brown, big and brown.
Grizzly bears are big and brown and live in the woods.

Polar bears are soft and white, soft and white, soft and white.
Polar bears are soft and white and live where it’s cold!

Teddy bears are just my size, just my size, just my size.
Teddy bears are just my size to cuddle with at night!

Marco the Polar Bear
Marco the polar bear as white as the snow.
Sat on the ice near the cold waters flow.
“Lunch! I need lunch!” he said.
He made a wish!
Then stuck his paw in and came up with a…FISH!
What color was his fish?
(repeat rhyme using various color fish puppets or clipart)

Literacy Tip

Relate the things that you are doing as you spend the day together to things that happen in your children’s favorite books.  For example, we’re going to make a yummy dessert to share together today just like our animal friends did in Bear Says Thanks. Would you like to make a pie like Mouse brought or muffins like Hare brought?
