My Teddy Bear Lyrics and Actions

Teddy Bear Gesture:
Cross your hands over your chest and scratch.
You can do the teddy bear gesture, or use and point to actual teddy bears.

♫ My teddy bear has two eyes, two eyes, two eyes. [Teddy bear gesture. Point to your eyes.]
My teddy bear has two eyes. I love my teddy bear. [Pretend to hug your teddy bear, or hug a real teddy bear!]

My teddy bear has one nose, one nose, one nose. [Teddy bear gesture. Point to your nose.]
My teddy bear has one nose. I love my teddy bear.

My teddy bear has two ears, two ears, two ears. [Teddy bear gesture. Point to your ears.]
My teddy bear has two ears. I love my teddy bear.

My teddy bear has two arms, two arms, two arms. [Teddy bear gesture. Point to your arms.]
My teddy bear has two arms. I love my teddy bear.

My teddy bear has two legs, two legs, two legs. [Teddy bear gesture. Point to your legs.]
My teddy bear has two legs. I love my teddy bear.

My teddy bear has four paws, four paws, four paws. [Seated on the ground, stretch out both arms and legs.]
My teddy bear has four paws. I love my teddy bear. [Hug yourself.]

Classroom Benefits

This gentle song is great for "mommy and me" classes and younger students. Use the song to teach how to show affection and to recognize parts of the body. It's also great to sing with a teddy bear before nap time!

Activity Ideas

Sing this song with your child seated on your lap. She will be your "teddy bear." As you sing the song, point to her eyes/ears/nose/etc. Each time you sing "I love my teddy bear," give your child a big hug. If you are singing with more than one child, give each child a teddy bear they can hold and hug. 1

Have a teddy bear day! Have your students bring their teddy bears to class. Take turns talking about your teddy bears. What color is it? Is it big or small? Then, have everyone place their teddy bears on their laps and sing the song together. The teacher should demonstrate first. 2

Play "Teddy Bear Says." This game is just like Simon Says. Have the students listen to your instructions and only follow them when you say, "Teddy Bear Says.” For example, the teacher says, “Teddy Bear says, touch your nose,” everyone touches your nose. If the teacher says, “Touch your toes,” (without saying, “Teddy Bear says” first), anyone who touches their toes is “out.” 3
