These bags are a great way to get students excited about introducing themselves to the class. I copy the letter and “Me Bag” cover front to back, and paper clip it to a gallon ziplock bag. I stagger the sharing days to ensure that we have plenty of time for other beginning of the year activities. I have included a girl and boy “Me Bag” cover. This activity also encourages and introduces students to listening and speaking. I encourage students to ask questions that show they are engaged and want to gain more insight. Enjoy!
