TAKE HOME BOOK BAGS TAKE HOME BOOK BAGS

I worked last summer on my project-Take Home Book Bags. I have 30 bags using themes and authors. Each bag has 3-5 books in it, fun sheets, work sheets, and most of the bags has a manipulative that goes with that bag. 

There is a permission slip sent home to the parents around the second week of school.  After signing yes and returning this letter, Book Bags will be checked out to the students on Mondays and need to be returned on Fridays.  This bag of books will be considered homework. 

There will be a check in and out sheet for each bag.  If the bags are not returned on Friday then no new bag will be checked out to that child. 

Here is a list of my Take Home Book Bags-
