Teacher Worksheets for November 2017

Here come the holidays, teachers!

The theme of the NovemBear issue is how kids can make a difference—at their school, in their community and in far away places, too.

There’s still time to have your students enter Mona’s Healthy Recipe Contest, brought to you by ASU Sustainability Solutions Initiatives! Every kid who enters receives a packet of seeds for a garden, plus there are prizes like winning tickets to the Phoenix Zoo or a miniature herb garden. Favorite recipes will be printed in Bear’s January issue and a few recipes will be demonstrated at the Sustainability Solutions Festival in February! HURRY—time is running out to submit your students’ fun and tasty recipes.

The November standards-based Classroom Work Sheets are posted online and go along with this month’s Bear Essential News. Please forward this email to your colleagues and they can sign up for these notifications online at BearEssentialNews.com.

Phoenix-area journalist wannabes—Bear is partnering with the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism for the annual Young Reporters Workshop! It’s Saturday, Jan. 27 at the school’s TV studios downtown and runs from 10:30–2:30 and includes the training you need to start reporting for Bear Essential News plus a pizza lunch! Teachers or parents need to call toll free: 1-866-NEWS KID to reserve space for attendees.

The monthly Young Reporter Night meeting in Tucson is the third Thursday of the month. This month, it’s at the Tucson J, 3800 E. River Rd., on Thursday, Nov. 16 at 5 p.m. till 6 p.m. If you have a news story to edit, please arrive at 4:30 to go over your story with an editor. Kids can show up with their parent to become Young Reporters, and this time around we’ll be teaching kids about photojournalism and how to take better photos and videos.

Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving
