I have included two different versions of this song:
I use this with my younger students. It's a great song for exploring loud and soft, and for practicing/preparing steady beat. File also includes iconic steady beat.
Grizzly Bear with Rhythms:
While this file is still wonderful dynamic practice, the rhythms are more extensive. I use this as an introduction to the half note. I include dynamic practice slides, iconic steady beat, iconic rhythm, and notated rhythm.
The last slide is a printable worksheet to help students practice with bar lines.
I like to do this song in the fall because we get to talk about how bears are getting ready for their winter long hibernation!
There are also a multitude of game options for this song- and the best part is- kids LOVE it!
