A Beary Special Friend
I have a special friend who visits my kinder classes each year. His name is Mr. Bear (creative, I know). He loves to hear children sing, especially his favorite song......."Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear" of course! He even directs the song, showing the kids the tempo he wants to use before we start. Sometimes he gets mischevious and gives us really FAST tempos, or really S-L-O-W tempos. You never know what he'll do next! When we finish his favorite song, he likes to watch the class from the sidelines. If he's really impressed with their work, he will give everyone a hug or handshake when they line up. But noisy, rowdy classes make him nervous. We have to be careful not to scare him!
I had one class this week who could not get enough of Mr. Bear. They thought he was so funny! His arms/paws move, and every time he started to conduct the music, they would bust out laughing! They nearly died when he touched his toes! LOL! Gotta love kinder babies.
