This week for my son’s preschool class I have chosen to read Bedtime for Bear by Brett Helquist.
I found a game at The Perpetual Preschool to play following the story.
Grizzly Bear Game
One child is selected to be bear. They lie in the middle of the circle with eyes closed, while everyone sings: Grizzly Bear, Oh Grizzly Bear, Oh sleeping in your den. Please be very quiet, Very, Very quiet. If you shake him, If you wake him, He will growl at you!
While everyone sings, instruct one child to gently shake the “bear”. That child resumes her place and when the song finishes the “bear” wakes up, looks around the circle and tries to identify the person that shook them. Give one guess and then the identity is revealed. The “bear” gets to growl at the person who shook them.
