Teddy Receives Holiday Presents

Teddy visited with the first graders of 1R during the holiday season.  Here in the United States, people celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah and the New Year among many other holidays in December and early January.  One of the things these holidays have in common is that people often exchange presents.  We wanted to share our culture with Teddy, so we got him some special holiday gifts.  Teddy had tried on a jacket at the Build A Bear workshop that he really liked.  So, he was really happy when he got that coat as a holiday gift from 1R.  We thought he might need it in Norway.  He also received some items to play baseball.  That is one of the most popular games here.  Maybe Teddy can teach other children around the world how to play!  Happy Holidays, Teddy!

Teddy Helps Us Make Snowmen Pictures

1R first graders made snowmen using cray-pas and collage techniques.  He even helped us clean up afterwards!  In this part of the world (Brookline, Massachusetts, USA), we usually have snow at this time of year.  This year has been different.  We have only had one snowstorm so far, and all of that snow has already melted.  Teddy is wondering if he will get to see more snow when he travels to Norway soon.

Teddy Loves Science

Teddy loved learning about plants and insects in first grade.  We planted broad bean seeds and watched them grow.  We then introduced aphids who quickly ate the plants.  Lastly, we had ladybugs eat the aphids to try to save the plants.  Through it all, Teddy had a front row seat!  He loved learning all about the world around him and was very curious about our investigations.
