The next day, I used Jack Hartmann's song "Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear." I did it whole-group and gave each child in my class a teddy bear. Can you believe I had 22 teddy bears?! Today, I used Dr. Jean's song "Kitty Cat Position Scat" with a class set of cat Beanie Babies. Here is a picture of the activity:

I hope these ideas help you today, and I'd like to know what you do with stuffed animals in the classroom.
