This document contains a poem that you can attach to a paper bag that explains what the me bag is. I use in an effort to create my classroom community. This reminds me of the "old school" show and tell. I give this bag with the poem attached to the students on the first day. I share my Me Bag (that I created previously) before I introduce the activity to the students. In my past bags I included things like chop sticks (love sushi), running watch (like to run), picture of my husband (obvious) and a set of colored pencils (like to draw). These are just some ideas. The first week of school I select a few students to share. By the end of the week all the students have shared. My students have loved it - It even teaches me a lot about them. I give the students an option to decorate the bag at home.
