We would like to introduce you to Isabella our take home Teddy for Blue group this year.
Every child will get a turn at taking Isabella home and then return her.
If you take her home on Firday you will return her on Tuesday
If you take her home on Tuesday you will return her on Friday
When you take Isabella home you will also bring an overnight bag with you which will contain a few essentials for an overnight stay and her journal.
We would like each family to create their own journal entry of Isabella’s stay at your house. Your child will share their page with the group at the next session.
You can be as creative as you like about Isabella’s adventures at your house. You can add photos, drawings, what Isabella has eaten, where has she been, where did she sleep etc.
We will continue this activity into term 4 so every child will have a turn. We will allocate Isabella to go home at the end of each session via a name out of the hat system, which is also exciting for the children.
Having a take home teddy is really special for each child as they eagerly await their turn. This experience will help develop positive self-esteem in the children as they share their own special stories with us. The children will develop responsibility too as they take on the role of caring for Isabella.
Thank-you and we look forward to sharing this with you.
