In September, we had a Teddy Bear Day in my classroom. Teddy Bear Day is September 9th and National American Teddy Bear Day is November 14th. Don't ask me what's the difference? Even though both of these dates have passed, you could do a Teddy Bear themed day on any day of the year, or save it for next year. My students loved it. Here are some of the activities from that day.
I passed out a handful of Ellison diecut miniature teddy bears in a variety of colors to each student. They had to sort their bears and then graph them. We discussed the graph and wrote the one they had the most and least of.
I gave each student a handful of honey and chocolate Teddy Grahams. Then they had to write an addition number sentence to tell how many they had all together and a subtraction number sentence to tell the difference between their two types of Teddy Grahams.
