Touring Teddies Traveled to Kinneret Day School!

What better way to start off the school year, than with a visit from a Touring Teddy bear?! 

The first and second graders at the Kinneret Day School in Riverdale, NY, were the excited recipients of Bernardo in Italy, and Hugo in France, respectively.

Generously introduced to the school by the new Assistant Principal, Mrs. Allyson Israel, our two Touring Teddies were warmly welcomed. The teachers implemented the Touring Teddies experience to create a heightened level of learning fun that had us wishing we were back in school ourselves!

The teachers opened and shared the four adventure-filled packages with the students on a weekly basis, as per instruction. However, they also went above and beyond, expanding on the experience by having their students 'write back' to the Teddies.

A beary big THANK YOU goes out to Mrs. Israel, as well as the first and second grade teachers at Kinneret Day School, who truly embody the Touring Teddies mission; providing an experience that fosters a love for reading, writing and cultural learning, by "Exploring together, letter by letter!"

Dear Hugo,  Gigi has her cozy spot on the shelf. We even put your picture with her. We have the blow-up globe and saw where you live. We can't wait for more pictures to come. You are our new best bear friend. Gigi is our cute and new friend.  I hope you fly home soon. Love Hadassah.
