It's in the bag!Using simple paper lunch bags you can create meaningful study guides for your students (I also call them bag books). Your creativity is your limit! I find this activity most helpful in small differentiated groups. In my first grade classroom I currently use these bag books to make sight words, sentence knowledge, and word families. My students cannot wait to add to their bags. These bag books are kept inside student pencil boxes and used multiple times daily.

How You Use the Bag Book
It's fun to use a bag book for parts of speech. The example to the left is used for adjectives. They could write their name and draw their picture (or add a school picture). Inside the flap they can describe themselves. Think about the possibilities........ students could describe the regions of Virginia, states of matter, list proper nouns!
What will you do?This is an inexpensive way to get students excited about work! A pack of 100 bags can be found at any dollar store. Think ahead and ask parents for a pack on your supply list.
So.... how will you use a bag book? Please share your ideas and let everyone know what is working for you? How many pages will you try? What grade(s) do you teach? The sky is the limit with these bag books and I'm so thrilled to hear how you choose to create and implement! Have fun.... because it's in the bag!!!
