TEDDY BEAR in the Czech Republic
TEDDY bear - Turkey
TEDDY bear - Portugal
With the intention of improving the knowledge of the students and schools involved in this project, we stimulated Teddy Bear activity. This teddy bear flew from Sweden to Portugal and became part of the life of our school and the families of the Portuguese students.
With the help of Portuguese families a storybook was built. Each student traveled with the Teddy bear and took him to know a little of our region and our customs. New clothes were made and the teddy became more knowledgeable of European diversity.
Teddy spent a full day with Matilde and his family! I brought new clothes to school and lots of ideas to share. Matilde constructed a text thus improving her writing skills.
The student was followed by Martim Crespo. Teddy went with his family to the restaurant to taste the Portuguese food. By the time they had finished dinner, everyone had another few grams! Then everything was written down in the storybook!
Carlota showed Teddy her wooden house. They then went cycling through the forest and saw many plants and some animals. At night they were very tired and fell asleep in an instant.
Angela and her family prepare a good welcome party for Teddy. There was time for many jokes and also for reading and writing.
Antonia likes to skate and read a lot. Teddy went to meet his skateboarding buddies and came to school with new clothes!
With Alice, Teddy traveled to Marinha Grande. He met a new city and a new family. He helped with homework and a new friendship story was built.
With the Vasco student, Teddy had a lot of fun at Carnival. He went to a masked party and listened very carefully to the stories that Vasco had to tell! Teddy loved being in Portugal!
Then it was time to travel to Turkey. From Portugal to Konya it was a rather long trip. Many hours by plane and there was little time to rest, however we know new places and we live a new experience.
