Flannel Friday: Bippity, Boppity, Boo, There’s a Teddy Bear On My Shoe!

16 Dec

A short post for y’all today, but a good one! I’ve been doing this with the kids this week and they’ve been enjoying it! I got this from Pubyac (someone sent out a compilation of teddy bear storytime ideas).

I give every child a picture of a bear. If you have enough teddies on hand to give them each a real one, great, but I do not. I made 24 of these – just clipart images of teddies, covered in contact paper (so they can be wiped off if necessary), and cut out:

We then recite this rhyme, moving the bear around to the body parts indicated:

Bippity, boppity, boo, there’s a teddy bear on my…shoe!

Bippity, boppity, bee, there’s a teddy bear on my…knee!

Bippity, boppity, belbow, there’s a teddy bear on my…elbow!

Bippity, boppity, bose, there’s a teddy bear on my…nose!

Etc…continued for as long as you can find rhymes!

This is very similar to “Willoughby Walloughby Woo,” in fact, I almost said elephant instead of teddy bear several times. I guess you COULD use almost any animal for this rhyme! I just happened to be doing a bear storytime right now.

That’s all for now, folks! Most flannel friday-ers will be taking the next two Fridays off since we’re all so busy around the holidays, and I’m no exception. See y’all again in the new year! And THANK YOU for your love and comments throughout the year! I appreciate you!

Dinosaurs and Teddy Bears; Plus, It Starts Early.

18 Oct

It’s been a while since I posted any stories about things the preschoolers have done/said! Well, that changes TODAY (mostly because today I a) have some stories to tell and b) can remember them):

We were reading How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight, and were on the last page where there’s a picture of a dinosaur snuggling with his teddy bear in bed.

This picture has nothing to do with anything. But there's a dinosaur!

Me: “what does he have?”

Kids: “a teddy bear!”

One particular girl: “I was in the jungle when I was little.”

Me: (usual response) “Oh?”

Girl: “And then I didn’t want my teddy bear any more so I gave it to a dinosaur.”

Seems like a good solution. Lucky dinosaur.

Yesterday, this little vignette took place, which cracked me up for a few moments. I had to put my face behind the book to regain my composure:

The scene: little boy, wearing an orange baseball cap, is sitting in front of another little boy. The boy in the back surreptitiously reaches around and pokes the bill of the orange hat, just enough to make it move. Boy wearing the hat feels this, but does not know who does it. Boy in baseball cap looks around at the boy behind, who, looking innocent, immediately points at the girl next to him.

It starts early.
