Flannel Friday – The Bear Went Over the Mountain

Another simple one for today’s Flannel Friday.

The Bear Went Over the Mountain
Bear Went Over the Mountain 1
    Bear Went Over the Mountain 2
Pattern & Song from: Mother Goose’s Playhouse by Judy Sierra
(song adapted by me, a little)
If you do infant and toddler storytimes, and don’t have this book yet, it’s so worth getting!

The bear went over the mountain,
The bear went over the mountain,
The bear went over the mountain,
To see what he could see.
But all that he could see,
But all that he could see,
But all that he could see was
The other side of the mountain.
The other side of the mountain,
The other side of the mountain,
was all that he could see.

The best part is the reversible bear.  You make him move up the mountain on one side, and then flip him over to sing it all over again and move him up the other side of the mountain.   Judy Sierra also suggests making this into a stick puppet, which I need to do.

And isn’t the fact that he has a backpack so rugged?

Here’s a copy of the bear pattern:

  1. Aaaw! Your bear is so cool with his backpack

    I wish I had seen this a month ago, We did bears for several weeks and used this song each week. We used sign language with it but your flannel set would have been perfect to add that visual element that the younger ones often need.

    Thanks for sharing this week!

  2. Would you be able to share the reversible bear template? I tried to buy the book that you suggested but it is no longer in print. I am an ESL teacher and I think my students would really like this activity.
