St. Anne School Makes Learning "Beary" Exciting!

St. Anne English E.L.K.P. student, Olivia Dunbabin enjoys a few moments with her bear "Canut". The smile on her face says it all. Learning can be "beary" exciting!

October 6, 2011 - The E.L.K.P. students within the English Early Learning Program at St. Anne School have been working very hard trying to recognize some signs of fall during their first month of school. Part of their discussions focussed on the characteristics of wild animals, such as bear hibernation. After spending time learning factual information, their classroom teacher decided to involve the student's own bears in learning activities. Teddy bears that is! The teddy bears came to the Hanmer Catholic School and were used in numeracy measurement and sorting activities. The bears were sorted and organized by size and colour. After an afternoon filled with learning, both students and their bears had a chance to relax before the bears were returned to their homes. Any way they looked at it, the students agreed. Learning about them or with them, bears have a lot to offer!
