What Teachers Say

"The Berenstain bears Financial Literacy program was wonderful to have in the classroom! The students were engaged not only by meeting the bears (which they LOVED and talked about for days later) but also in the story that was shared with them. The experience also allowed me to make connections in mathematics as well as our social studies unit that involves needs and wants. Thanks again for coming into my class and I hope you can come again for next year's kiddos!" 
-Trinity, First Grade Teacher

"Thank you so much for bringing the Berenstain Bear Financial Literacy Program to my class!  My students loved meeting the bears and learning about important vocabulary such as earn, spend, save, and share.  We were studying these vocabulary words in class, so it perfectly complemented our existing lessons!  I appreciate you coming out and hope you are able to come again next year!"
 -Nicolette, First Grade Teacher

“The Berenstain Bears financial literacy program is just perfect for my first graders!  It explains earning, saving, spending and banking right at their developmental level in an engaging and FUN way!  The program lends itself well to our social study standards that concentrate on identifying needs and wants as well.  Not to mention, when Brother Bear and Sister Bear come into the classroom the kids- and myself- just light up!  I will definitely add this program to my class every year from now on!”
- Ashley, First Grade Teacher
