Starting this week, children in the morning program are taking turns bringing home a special guest from school.
“Baby Bear” is a stuffed bear who travels home with each participating child, carried in his own backpack along with a notebook. Baby Bear spends the night, and the children record their experience on a page of the notebook with drawings, dictated words or photos of Bear’s time in their home.
Back at school, the children share their page at group time. They’re invited to describe it or to have the teachers read the page for them. We’ll see what adventures Baby Bear gets up to this year!
