This is BackPack Bear from Starfall.com. He is part of the Kindergarten Curriculum and he is adorable! Each day Backpack Bear whispers a messsage to me and I write it for him. Then it goes into his backpack for the Helper of the Day to remove. I read the note to the class and the kids love it! Sometimes he tells us something to do or he even leaves picture cards, games or books for us to use. The Helper sits in the Helper Bear chair and takes Backpack Bear wherever he/she goes. It is a favorite part of the Morning Opening routines. You can purchase Backpack Bear on the Starfall site!
Hi! My name is Cindy and I have been a public school teacher for 22 years. I have taught all but 3 of those years in Kindergarten!
I am at home working with those adorable and eager 4,5 and 6 year olds and I especially like teaching them how to read!
I am also married and have a 19 year old son in college and a 9 year old daughter in 4th grade. Life is Good!
