Bear Hunt "Repeat After Me" Song
(children repeat each phrase and slap thighs throughout)

Goin on a bear hunt (repeat)
I'm not afraid (repeat)
Got a real good friend
(children hug each other during this part...repeat)
By my side (repeat)

Oh, Oh (repeat)
What do I see? (repeat)
Oh look! It's some tall grass! (repeat)
Can't go over it (repeat)
Can't go under it (repeat)
Can't go around it (repeat)
Got to go through it
(repeat... Make motions with arms like you are clearing a way through grass)

Goin on a bear hunt (repeat)
I'm not afraid ( repeat)
Got a real good friend (repeat with hugs)
By my side.(repeat)

Oh, Oh! (repeat)
What do I see? (repeat)
Oh look! It's a tall tree.(repeat)
Can't go over it (repeat)
Can't go under it (repeat)
Can't go through it (repeat)
Got to climb up it
(Repeat and pretend to climb up the tree)

Goin on a bear hunt (repeat)
I'm not afraid ( repeat)
Got a real good friend (repeat with hugs)
By my side.(repeat)

Oh, Oh! (repeat)
What do I see? (repeat) Oh look! It's a wide river. (repeat)
Can't go over it (repeat)
Can't go under it (repeat)
Can't go through it (repeat)
Got to swim across it.
(Repeat and pretend to swim.)

Goin on a bear hunt (repeat)
I'm not afraid ( repeat)
Got a real good friend (repeat with hugs)
By my side.(repeat)

Oh, Oh! (repeat)
What do I see? (repeat)
Oh look! A deep, dark cave. (repeat)
Can't go over it (repeat)
Can't go under it (repeat)
Can't go through it (repeat)
Got to go in it.
(repeat, close eyes as you pretend to enter the cave)

Oh, oh! It's dark in here. (repeat)
I feel something (repeat)
It has lots of hair! (repeat)
It has sharp teeth! (repeat)

It's a bear!! (children love to scream this part)
(At this point, increase the speed of your thigh slapping
and swim back through the river, back up and down the tree,
back through the tall grass, until you get safely home and lock the door.)
I'm not afraid! (Repeat)


Marco the Polar Bear

Marco the Polar Bear,
(make circle in front of body with arms)
White as the snow,
(extend out arms proudly)
Sat down on the ice
(sit down)
Near the cold water's flow.
(shiver)
"Lunch! I need lunch" he said;
(rub stomach)
"I'll make a wish."
(put hands together to make wish)
He stuck in his paw
(put right hand down)
And came up with a fish!
(hold up right hand and smile)

Three Brown Bears
Tune: Three Blind Mice

Three brown bears
Three brown bears
See all their beds
See all their chairs
The mommy cooked in
A big brown pot
The daddy's porridge
Was much too hot
The baby bear
Always cried a lot
Three brown bears

*****

This Little Bear

This little bear has a fur suit. (thumb)
This little bear acts very cute (pointer finger)
This little bear is bold and cross. (middle finger)
This little bear says, "You're not boss." (ring finger)
This little bear likes bacon and honey. (little finger)
But he can't buy them, he has no money.

*****

Bear Coat

The polar bear, the polar bear
He has a handsome coat to wear
But, while it's thick and warm and white
He has to wear it day and night.

And when the summer comes, poor brute,
He wears it for his swimming suit.
Although his coat is thought so fine,
I'm very glad that it's not mine.

The Bear In The Cave

Here is the cave
    (cup left hand to make cave)
And here is the bear
    (clench right hand with thumb raised to represent bear)
And here comes the wind
    (wave both hands)
With it's cold, blustery air
    (flutter fingers)

"Come little bear, and hurry inside
    (beckon with index finger of right hand)
The cave is a warm place in which you can hide."
    (place right thumb into left fist)
"Sleep, little bear, all cozy and snug;
    (place hands together with fingers outstretched, rest head on hands)
With the snow on your cave like a fluffy white rug."

"Wake up, little bear
    (make a fist with right hand with thumb sticking up)
It's time now to play.
The wind's blowing warm
    (make fingers on right hand wiggle)
And the snow's gone away."
    (motion away with left hand)

"Run, little bear in the forest all day.
    (make running motion with fingers)
Till winter returns and you must hide away!"

The Polar Bear
Tune: My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean

The polar bear lives in the Arctic,
He never gets cold in a storm,
He swims in the icy cold water,
His heavy coat keeps him warm.

Warm, warm, warm, warm,
His heavy coat keeps him warm.
Warm, warm, warm, warm,
His heavy coat keeps him warm!

*****

Bear Cubs
Tune: 10 Little Indians

1 little, 2 little, 3 little bear cubs
4 little, 5 little, 6 little bear cubs,
7 little, 8 little, 9 little bear cubs,
10 little bear cubs in a row.

10 little, 9 little, 8 little bear cubs,
7 little, 6 little, 5 little bear cubs,
4 little, 3 little, 2 little bear cubs,
1 little bear cub...now zero.

Five Big Grizzly Bears

5 big grizzly bears under a tree
Looked all around to see what they could see.
1 went off to the nearest store.
Now there are only 4.

4 big grizzly bears under a tree
Looked all around to see what they could see.
1 ran after a buzzing bee.
Now there are only 3.

3 big grizzly bears under a tree
Looked all around to see what they could see.
1 went to visit friends at the zoo.
Now there are only 2.

2 big grizzly bears under a tree
Looked all around to see what they could see.
1 went away to rest in the sun.
Now there is only 1.

1 big grizzly bear under a tree
Looked all around to see what they could see.
1 had a job that must be done.
And now.. there are none.

No big grizzly bears under a tree.
No bears looking to see what they could see.

*****

The Teddy Bear Dance
Tune: Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Pick your bear up off the ground
And go dancing all around
Hold him high and hold him low
Twirl him fast and twirl him slow
'Round and 'round and 'round you go
When you dance, donít let him go.

*****

Camouflage!

The polar bear has a white fur coat,
Sometimes he walks quite slow.
It's hard to see just where he is.
He looks just like the snow!
