Storytime: Winnie the Pooh – BEARS & FEELINGS
Join us this month as retell the story of Winnie-the-Pooh. His logic is always impressive with thoughts like, “People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day.” We hope you enjoy the bear tales this week as you do the impossible… nothing!
Join us Monday, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m. or Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room.
Sing, Talk, Read, Write, Play
Both music and art can help to convey a mood. Pictures can enhance the words of a book and reinforce the mood that the author is trying to convey. Awareness of the relationship between words and pictures contributes to a child’s depth of expression.
See how “singing” the book “Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?” to the melody of “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star,” enhances the illustrations. Since it is a common melody, encourage your child to sing the words of the book with you.

Bear Dreams by Elisha Cooper
One autumn afternoon a bear cub disobeys his mother and his father and goes outside to play with his friends.
This bear cub, you see, does not want to go to sleep for the winter, or even for one minute. This bear cub has big ideas and big plans and big dreams. Bear dreams.

Bears Eat Honey
A bear eats honey
(pretend to eat)
He thinks it’s yummy
In his tummy
But the bees don’t think it’s funny!
(make buzzing noise)
