Bear Stays Up for Christmas

After reading Bear Stays Up for Christmas, we played one of our favorite games- 
"Grizzly Bear"!
One of us was the bear 
(we took turns playing this part). 
The rest of us picked characters from the book to portray- Mouse, Hare, Badger, Raven, Wren, Mole and Gopher. We each have chosen our favorite characters from these charming books.
Mouse, Mole and Hare
Wren and Raven
As our chosen "Bear" slept in his/her cave,
the rest of us quietly sneaked up on "Bear" and then proceeded to wake him/her.
Surprised by the rude awakening, "Bear" chased the rest of us back to the start.
As we played, we sang:
Grizzly bear, oh grizzly bear 
is sleeping in his/her cave. 
Please be very quiet.
Very, very quiet.
If you wake him/her.
If you shake him/her.
He'll/She'll get very mad.
We played and dramatized over and over again, taking on new "parts" each time.
