Get ready for BEAR Time--Be Excited About Reading! Our individualized reading program is so much fun and the children love their special BEAR bags they get to take home each week with their book. I will update this post as we get closer to our BEAR kickoff, featuring, of course, a Teddy Bear Picnic and a mini-literature comparison study of different Goldilocks and the Three Bears stories. I can't help putting up our Berenstain Bear family early to get the children's interest piqued. Then I hide Honey Bear and they have to find her!
