Clip to ScrapBook #6

We do this one with little finger actions, but often i just do a verse or two, however long it takes for them to be settled. We only rarely say the whole thing:

"Once upon a time in a nursery rhyme there were three bears.(click, click, click)
A Mama and a Papa and a wee bear. (click, click, click)
One day when they went walkin' and a-talkin' in the woods.
Along came a girl with long, golden hair. (click, click, click)

”Someone’s been sitting in my chair,” said the Papa bear.
“Someone’s been sitting in my chair,” said the Mama bear.

“Hey, Mama She Bear,” said the little wee bear, “Someone has broken my chair.”

Yeah!

“Someone’s been tasting my porridge,” said the Papa bear.
”Someone’s been tasting my porridge,” said the Mama bear.

“Hey, Mama She Bear,” said the little wee bear,”Someone has eaten my porridge."

Yeah!

“Someone’s been sitting on my bed,” said the Papa bear.
”Someone’s been sitting on my bed,” said the Mama bear.

“Hey, Mama She Bear,” said the little wee bear,”Someone is here in my bed.”

Yeah!!

Goldilocks woke up and broke up the party. (click, click, click)
"Bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye," said the Papa bear.(wave hand)
”Bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, ” said the Mama bear.(wave other hand)
"Hey, Mama She Bear," said the little wee bear, "Bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye, bye."(wave both hands)

Yeah!"

I also have memorized several A.A. Milne poems and will often recite one while the kids are coming to the rug. Keeps 'em listening!
