Family Literature Bags
In October 2007 Deb Milka and I received an MPEF (Mattawan Public Education Foundation) Creative Instruction Award to produce Family Literature Bags.
Our goal was to produce 30 bags so that each class would have 15 bags at a time enabling each child to check one bag out every other week. We trade bags mid-way through the year, so each class will have a whole "new" set of bags!
What is a Family Literature Bag?
to look at our grant proposal to find out more!
Many hours have been spent putting these bags and activities together. Therefore, you and your child must complete a Family Literature Bag Contract
before he or she is allowed to check out a bag.
to view some awesome response journal entries
from our Literature Bags.
We always accept donations of books, puzzles, small toys, games or other items for our Family Literature bags. You can click on our above proposal to see the topics of our bags.
