TR Readers' Theater: A Tale of Two Teddies
Theodore Roosevelt Elementary School 2nd graders in Ms. Jennifer Patti’s class brought city and country teddy bears to the stage when they presented a readers’ theater on the book, Town Teddy and Country Bear by author-illustrator Ms. Kathleen Bart.
Following their teacher, students marched down the hallway wearing oversized T-shirts featuring a picture of the book cover. Half the class wore bandanas and cowboy hats to represent the country bear, while the other half donned bow ties and top hats to portray the city bear.
