Bears, Bears Everywhere!: Supporting Children's Emotional Health in the Classroom
Lesley Koplow offers teachers a proven way of addressing social and emotional issues in the classroom. In Bears, Bears Everywhere!, Koplow shares innovative strategies for integrating Teddy Bears into classroom life and the curriculum itself to help teachers address unresolved emotional issues that hinder children's socialization and learning processes. She explains how using Teddy Bears as transitional objects can help children connect to their feelings and express them in constructive ways, establishing a safe and supportive learning environment.
To help teachers integrate the Teddy Bear method into core curriculum, the text includes lesson plans, grade-specific activities (pre-K-5th grade), sample dialogue, children's writing and drawing, and full-colour photographs.
