1) Introduction
Ask the children what they have you been doing this morning before they came hear?
Today’s story is about a one day in a teddy bear’s life, called “Do and Tell”


2) Story
Teddy Horsley is a bear who likes playing in the park.
He sits on the see-saw with Betsy Bear. He joins Betsy, Lucy and Walter on the roundabout.
He lets Lucy give him a push on the swing. He paddles in the pool with Walter.
He climbs up onto the top of the slide and bumps into Betsy Bear when he comes sliding down.
When he comes home from the park Teddy Horsley likes to tell Mr. and Mrs. Henry everything they have been doing.

Teddy Horsley is a bear who likes looking round the shops
He sniffs the smell of the new baked bread at the bakers. He enjoys the taste of fresh cheese at the grocers.
He tries on a large hat at the clothes shop. He rides the brightly painted rocking horse at the toy shop.
He pushes the trolley round the supermarket and knocks over a large display of boxes.
When he comes home from the shops Teddy likes to tell Lucy and walter everything they have been doing.

He is a bear who likes helping in the house.
He weighs out the flour when Mr. Henry bakes a cake. He polishes the table when Mrs. Henry cleans the room.
He washes the dishes with Walter after breakfast and helps Lucy put things away in the cupboard.
When it is time for prayers Teddy Horsley likes to tell God everything they have been doing.


3) Discussion
Talk about the story:
What did teddy Horsley do in the park? Who did he tell when he got home?
What did he do in the shops? Who did he tell when he got home?
What did he do in the house? Who did he tell at the end of the day?
Think some more about the story:
What else might Teddy Horsley do in the park? What else might he fdo in the shops?
What else might he do in the house? Who else might he tell about what he has been doing?

Talk about what you like doing:
What do you like doing when you go to the park? Who do you tell when you get home?
What do you like doing when you get to the shops? What do you tell when you get home? What do you like doing to help in the house? Who do you tell at the end of the day? Why do you like to tell them?


4) Activity
*Card game – Lay out the cards showing pictures from one part of the story, in a line. Each child rolls a dice. If they get a number five they count to the fifth card, pick it up and say what the bear did. 
The next child does the same. When all the cards are picked up, each child can say what the bear did that day. 
* Colour the picture from the story showing the bear praying


5) Review the Aims
*To learn that it is good to tell your parents what you do each day
In the story the bear tells his family what he has been doing. What will you tell your family what you have done in Sunday school today? 
*We can report to God at the end of each day
The bear also tells God what he did at the end of the day. You can do the same.


6) Prayer
Ask children to say what we did today in Sunday School then say a prayer to tell God
