Friday, Friday

So yesterday I spent the day working on what I use to call my "Book in a Bag".  Boring!! ...and so I came up with, after looking through several ideas, My Backpack.  Instead of just focusing on books I am going to focus on language and include a poem each week.  I have decided to use lg. baggies as the "backpack" and keep the cover page in front.  Each bag will have two books, some spelling, a poem and for those ready "fluency passages".  I am thinking that the others might have sight words.
Still have a few more "kinks" to work through but I sure have a good start.  Wanted to share with you.  Let me know your thoughts and your ideas!  Enjoy!! Michele


  1. Wow! Love your 'new and improved' version! I've been thinking about something for my second graders...but this would be a great start to the year. THank you!

  2. This is so cute. I'm wanting to start a reading log this year and this would work wonderfully. I was sure of how to start it.
