Flannel Friday: Bear Hunt!

This week’s Flannel Friday is inspired by Sarah from Read It, Again!

After my storytime kids enjoyed “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt” so much in my camping storytime, I knew I needed to make some flannel pieces so that we could do it again. Luckily, Sarah’s pictures were very easier to follow and I did my best to replicate them. Here’s the rhyme I learned in library school:

Action Rhyme: “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt”
We’re going on a bear hunt (We’re going on a bear hunt)
Gonna catch a big one (Gonna catch a big one)
I’m not scared (I’m not scared)
What a beautiful day! (What a beautiful day!)
Oh look! It’s some long, wavy grass!
Can’t go under it (Can’t go under it)
Can’t go over it (Can’t go over it)
Can’t go around it (Can’t go around it)
Gotta go through it (Gotta go through it!)
(Trees, River, Storm, Cave, etc. until you meet a bear; then run back!)

Since my flannelboard has a shelf hidden between the easel (you can see it here), I hid a bear puppet behind it and pulled it out once we found the bear! As you can imagine, that led to a lot of delightful shrieks, so it was well worth it.
