Flannel Friday: 5 Bears in the Bed

9 Nov

I do Bear storytime every fall – my bear puppet’s getting ready to hibernate so we read him some bedtime stories.

The song “Ten In the Bed” (or 5, in this case) is a staple for my bedtime stories theme, but also works great for this storytime. I had a flannelboard already made up for this one, but it was looking pretty sad and careworn, so I decided to re-do it.

For anyone not in the know, here’s the song (and you can find the tune here):

5 bears in the bed (hold up 5 fingers) and the little one said:

“roll over! roll over!” (roll hands)

So they all rolled over and one fell out! (1 bear falls out of bed)

4 bears in the bed… etc.

The kids especially enjoy if, when a bear falls out, he actually flies through the air and lands on the floor. Flying felt is ALWAYS a hit.

I got the bed pattern from Making Learning Fun. The bears are a result of a clipart search for a pattern.

Today’s roundup will be hosted by Anna, our Future Librarian Superhero! And click the icon to the right to see all past flannels, organized visually by categories.

Happy flanneling!
