another use of book bags

Years ago we created book bags with communication symbols, puppets, and some ideas for parents of kids with disabilities. Parents loved them and used them. I wonder if your boys could take their books home in their bags and maybe get even more mileage out of the materials you gathered.

    Nice presentation ladies. I really liked that you gave your boys an interest survey and then created bags for them based on what they were interested in reading. Having them reflect on the book after ... more

        One of my former co-workers even wrote a grant that funded the supplies for their book bags. If you want to continue to use that idea but worry about loosing supplies you may write a grant with... more

        I like taking the bags home or pretending the bags are taking a flight to an unknown destination..or a destination of the teacher's choice. The setting of the story would change making other... more

        My boys do take their books home and use those books for the homework response log. So they are reading the books and sharing them with other students along with reading the books to someone at home.

          I have some boys that I must check everyday that they have completed a response log, because if I didn't, they wouldn't read. I think it's great that their reading should be paired with some type of... more

          For your homework response logs- do the parents just sign it, or do you have them resond to a question or task? I switched over to the students selecting one question to answer out of a choice of... more

            I too used to have parents simply sign each night that their child read the book in their folder. This did accomplish repeated reading, however I wanted to have them work on comprehension too. So... more

              I use similar parent/teacher communication logs with my “Baggy Books” that I send home with children to read every night. The parent will write the title, initial whether they read to, with, or if... more

        What if you create a book club and only put the students together based on the types of books that they like. Then they can present the books that they read to the class as a group. In the group, a... more

          Great idea Rachel. I was thinking this would be a wonderful strategy to use with the whole class. Have everyone complete an interest survey, form groups based on similar interests, meet with the... more
