'Me and my Teddy Bear'
Kindergarteners of Wayne's West Elementary School combined learning fundamentals with fun last week during a special teddy bear unit.
Teacher Joan Hansen said the 45 kindergarten students listened to stories about bears, counted teddy bears, lined the bears in order of size and were taught teddy bear finger plays.
The students also made blue teddy bear cutouts which they used as place mats. Friday was Teddy Bear Day and the youngsters brought their own teddy bears from home to accompany them throughout the school day.
Members of the afternoon class are Todd Koeber, Mark Lentz, Andrew Metz, Amy Cowgill, Troy Jeffrey, Heather Mau, Adam Bebee, Damon Wiser, Ryan Newman, Brent Geiger, Robbie Heier, Jason Starzl, Kelly Soden, Jessica Tannehill, Jason Peck, Melissa Struve, Tammy Teach, Heather Nichols, Jenny Thompson, Mark Roland, Trevor Schroeder and Mary Ewing.
