The holidays are headed this way, teachers!
The NovemBear issue features creatures in need and how Arizona zoos and aquariums help conservation efforts.
There’s also a neat holiday coloring contest with Boomer Bear where kids can win a set of four tickets to some wonderful holiday events. They need to mark their first, second and third choices for which events, and teacher’s can sign their entry forms and use their email address instead of the parent(s). Hurry with your entries—deadline is Nov. 28.
This month’s standards-based Classroom Work Sheets are posted online and augment this fun-n-fact-filled issue. Please forward this email to your colleagues and they can sign up for these notifications online at BearEssentialNews.com.

The monthly Young Reporter Night meeting in Tucson is the third Thursday of the month. This month, it’s at Bookmans on Speedway near Wilmot on Thursday, Nov. 15 from 5 p.m. till 6 p.m. The presentation is on finding reliable news sources. If you have a news story to edit, please arrive at 4:30. It was a great meeting last month with lots of new and veteran Young Reporters.
Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving,
