Teddy Bear Picnic
I went for a walk in the woods one day,
And I met some nice folks on my way.
They were having a picnic that bears adore,
With berries and buns and goodies galore,
Jams and jellies and strawberry pies,
And a chocolate cake that was just the right size.
When I went for a walk in the woods that day,
I asked those folks if I could stay,
To taste those things that looked so yummy
And help to fill my empty tummy.
But when I spoke, to my dismay,
I scared those friendly folks away!
Even though I didn't ask it . . .
They left behind their picnic basket!
Now, what’s a hungry bear to do
But take a great big bite or two?
I sat right down and began to eat,
And oh my goodness, what a treat!
Before you go for a walk in the woods,
Be sure to pack a picnic basket!

Today was such a beautiful fall day....we went for a walk in the orchard and met some Teddy Bears along the way. The above poem is a school project that we are working on this week. If you are interested in the lesson plan, just click on this Teddy Bear! [This is a lesson plan that Mommy helps Emma Sage with, but the focus for me is for her to listen closely to the story and try and remember as much detail as possible....plus going out for a walk with your Teddy Bears is just too much fun!!!]
