Bear Week (Thursday)
Teddy Bear Games: Collect a large group of teddy bears before playing the games below.
- Let the children count the total number of teddy bears.
- Ask the children to sort the teddy bears by categories (color, size, those wearing bows, etc.). Then have them count the number of bears in each category.
- Have the children make different sets of teddy bears (five brown bears, three white bears, etc.).
ABC Bears: Cut 26 teddy bear shaes out of posterboard and write "A" through "Z" on them with a felt-tip marker. Laminate or cover each bear with clear self-stick paper. Then mix up the bears and let the children have fun arranging them in alphabetical order.
