CES hosts BEAR Night

Campbellsville Elementary School hosted BEAR Night for preschool, kindergarten and first-grade students on Tuesday, Nov. 22.

 

BEAR stands for Be Excited About Reading.

 

At the event, students participated in several fun activities geared toward reading. Campbellsville University early childhood education students led the activities, which were all STEM-based.

 

Activities included building bridges, making wind chimes and spin tops, building a marble run, playing with blocks and much more.

 

Students attending were given a free book and teddy bear.

 

Campbellsville Family Resource and Youth Services Center and Campbellsville University partnered to host the event.

 

CES will host another BEAR night in the spring.
