Who doesn’t recognize a loveable teddy bear? Teddy bears, one of the most familiar toys, make young children feel comfortable in new surroundings. When children see a teddy bear in a classroom, they feel more at ease. Teddy Bears at School gives teachers over a hundred teddy bear-themed activities to implement into their curriculum.
Teddy Bears at School: An Activities Handbook for Teachers of Young Children is designed for use with young students from 4-7 years old. Children often have conversations with teddy bears, and this develops stronger language skills. Teddy bears offer a sense of well-being and help build a child’s confidence and self-esteem. Other benefits of using teddy bears as developmental tools include math, dramatization, and gross and fine motor skills.
Teachers can use Teddy Bears at School as an in-depth guide to design and maintain a learning or daycare center. If your facility has a limited budget, you will find affordable yet clever resources for administrators and teachers. Young children will enjoy the fun bear-related activities in this book, and teachers will find fresh inspiration.
