    Traveling Animals or Bags

    I have done a Teddy's Adventures in my class. Each child gets to take Teddy the bear home for the night. They take care of him and record what they did together. Teddy has his own back pack (small crayola backpack) with pj's, a toothbrush, storybook for bedtime, his journal (which is a copybook) and a camera. The children were allowed to take three pictures on his visit. The stories are always interesting. The children loved it. I only have 21 last year so Teddy went home with the children on three different occasions. When Teddy came back to school the next day, we shared his adventure with the class. The who take him home always love to see the pictures from the other children. When Teddy was in the classroom, he did everything with us- from going on class trips to doing centers with the children. It is a great project. I also had story bags. They were cloth bags with props that go along with a specific story. The child read the story with their parent and then illustrated their favorite part of the book. We put all the response in a class story which we shared each afternoon.
    I hope this helps, if you have any other question, feel free to email me. Good luck!
