Teacher Worksheets for April 2018

Happy Spring, Educators!

Bear’s standards-based work sheets for its big Summer Camp Guide Edition are up, as is our hugely popular Camp Guide for Phoenix and Tucson!

For April and Earth Day, Bear Essential features some fun and fabulous wild places in Arizona. Spring is a terrific time for classrooms and families to enjoy the outdoors and to see native wildlife. The feature also gives tips on preparing for your outdoor adventures.

The April issue continues Bear’s Big Summer Camp Guide, which is also available online. Parents have come to rely on the pertinent info our guides provide, so please encourage students to take their newspapers home to share with their parent(s).

The work sheets that go with the April issue are now available! Because it’s AzMERIT test taking time, these work sheets are a bit more simple than usual and include some fun activities.

Your teaching teammates can sign up online for our free ACCRS-based Work Sheets for grades K-2, 3-4, 5-6 and 7-8 and/or Bear’s digital newsletter by clicking on the this link: http://bit.ly/2GeKn10.

Please encourage your students in grades 2 thru 8 to join the Young Reporters Program. Participants in this free and fabulous writing program receive all the materials they need to get started! For details, go to Young Reporters and look under the Teachers tab.

Sign up for our weekly Newsletter for Bear’s free ACCRS-based Work Sheets for grades K-2, 3-4, 5-6 and 7-8. These monthly Work Sheets augment the current issue of Bear Essential News, which is a trusted source for a wide range of informational text. Please share this link with other teachers, and they can sign up for these notifications through the newsletter.

Bear Essential Educational Services also offers FREE classroom presentations on journalism and writing. So after testing is finished, consider scheduling a visit. We like to present to a minimum of three classes per school visit, and those presentations can be different. The topics cover different grade levels: (link to presentations here) Call 1-866-NEWS KID (866-639-7543) to schedule.

Best of luck and thank you for all you do for your students!
