TEDDY’s FIRST DAY AT SCHOOL FOCUSES ON
THE SOCIAL VALUE OF: UNDERSTANDING
- the ability to appreciate or accept the feelings and thoughts of others
- the act of being tolerant and showing kindness in diverse situations
In this story, Teddy goes to school with his boy, Matthew, and meets another stuffed bear. The two bears get off to a rough start because of their differences, but working together when an issue arises leads them to a fresh beginning.
When young children are introduced to the Teddy stories, their desire to hear the stories over and over helps them absorb key social values. As this story unfolds, children discover how a little kindness can go a long way, especially in a time of need.
