Bears Eat Honey 

A bear eats honey (pretend to eat) 

He thinks it’s yummy 

In his tummy (rub tummy) 

But the bees don’t think it’s funny! 

Buzzzz (make buzzing noise) 

 

A Little Brown Bear 

A little brown bear, went in search of some honey (shade eyes with hand) 

Isn’t it funny, a bear wanting honey? (shrug shoulders) 

He sniffed at the breeze (lift head and sniff) 

And listened for bees (hold hand to ear) 

And wouldn’t you believe it, he even climbed trees! (climb) 

 

Five Little Bears 

One little bear, wondering what to do. 

Along came another bear, then there were two. 

Two little bears climbing up a tree. 

Along came another bear, then there were three. 

Three little bears, eat an apple core. 

Along came another bear, then there were four. 

Four little bears, eating honey from a hive. 

Along came another bear, then there were five. 

Five little bears heard a loud roar, 

One ran away, then there were four. 

Four little bears, climbing up a tree. 

One slid down, then there were three. 

Three little bears, deciding what to do. 

One fell asleep, then there were two. 

Two little bears, having lots of fun. 

One went home, and then there was one. 

One little bear, feeling all alone, 

Ran to his mother, then there were none.
