I introduced the class to Bessie today 🙂 it was very sweet seeing them play with her, and learn through her about travel. The children like simply holding her and using her bags to store some of their toys.This post is on the Traveling Teddy Bear website, and I look forward to seeing what else the children include her in!
I really want to try these with my kids! The bags are filled with things that make the children unique – items from home, favorite toys, pictures, etc. It is a fun way to get the kids to share about themselves without having to do posters. Bringing in objects that make you who you are, rather than a poster or just sharing pictures, will help me truly understand my students. There could be an assortment of things that they could bring! I am very excited by it 🙂 I am definitely going to share this with the Preschool and Kindergarten teachers as well!
