This year for Take Your Teddy to School Day, first and second graders read and wrote about bears in the library. Fifth graders even joined in to write some informational bear books so that there was always enough to read. The library created a special bear cave in our reading area so our bears could read or hibernate. One of the great bear books we read was The Bear Ate Your Sandwich, a humorous book to make us ask questions and possibly to distrust dogs. Students brought their bears to the library where we all heard great bear stories, had a bear snack, and got some cuddles in while we learned.
