Storytime: Winnie the Pooh – BEARS & FEELINGS

Storytime: Winnie the Pooh – BEARS & FEELINGS

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.

Ages 2-5

Sing, Talk, Read, Write, Play

Tip

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.

- Lambert

Activity

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.

Books Presented

Winnie-the-Pooh by A.A. Milne

The adventures of Christopher Robin and his friends, in which Pooh Bear uses a balloon to get honey, Piglet meets a Heffalump, and Eeyore has a birthday.

Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? by Bill Martin

Children see a variety of animals, each one a different color, and a teacher looking at them.

 

Discovery Kit: BEARS

This Discovery Kit includes a collection of fun books and games all about BEARS! 

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.

 

Songs, Rhymes, and Fingerplays

Bears Eat Honey

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

Crafts and Activities

What feeling is Pooh Bear feeling while he's in the sky?

Make trees for the 100 Hundred Acre Wood!

Additional Books

Please Please the Bees by Gerald Kelley

Life is sweet for Benedict. Every morning he wakes up to find jars of fresh honey on his back porch. He makes honey toast for breakfast, bakes honey cake in the afternoon, and drinks honey tea before bed. But one day, the jars on Benedict’s porch are empty. The bees in his backyard have gone on strike! They are tired of doing all the work around the hive. What can Benedict do to make the bees happy and bring sweetness back to his days?

Beware! by Bob Raczka

Using words made up of only the five letters “beware,” a little bear named Abe and a bee named Bree, who have been warned about each other, compete for the flowers in their meadow, but end up as friends willing to put aside their differences and share

Eat Up Bear by Terry Pierce

Black bears just want to eat! Juicy berries, crunchy nuts, tender grubs, and sticky honey–that’s good bear food. But if park visitors don’t watch out, their food will be bear food, too! Bouncy rhyming text and vibrant pictures share how families can do their part to keep bears safe and thriving.”

My Love is All Around by Danielle McLean

Mommy Bear shows Baby Bear how love is all around them no matter where they go and what they do! Join Mommy Bear and Baby Bear as they discover that love is all around them.

A Good Long Walk

Logs due by noon, Monday, February 22

As all Austen readers know, her characters are champion walkers. Whatever the novel, the heroine will at some point go on a good, long walk. Persuasion is no exception as all the younger folk at Uppercross head over the hills to stretch their legs. We’re going to take the outing a bit further and take the major journeys of the novel on foot as well. You can decide how much you’re willing to take on and which direction you’d like to go. Feel like some time by the sea? It’s 17 miles to Lyme Regis. Spend your month there if you’d like. Do you prefer the society of Bath? That’s a little longer journey at 47 miles. Enjoy the concerts and parties! If you’re really just wanting to walk and then walk some more, you could walk to Lyme Regis and from there to Bath for a total of 77 miles. Don’t worry, you can send for a carriage at any time.

It doesn’t matter which destination you select. Anyone turning their log in before noon on Monday, February 22, will be entered into a drawing for a volume containing all of Jane Austen’s works.
