This editable activity is a highlight of the year for all students K-2. A teddy bear goes home with a student in a backpack each weekend. Students write about what they did with Teddy in the journal and then return to school and share their journal entries with the class. As an extension, you can create a Teddy Center where students can read to Teddy, reread past journals, retell a journal entry adventure or write a story about Teddy. Since it is editable, you can insert the name of your teddy bear on any of the pages.
