2. Print, copy, and cut out enough for your class.

"Reading Reminder Tool Kit"
"I hope this Reading Reminder kit will remind you of all the wonderful things that opening a book will do for your child. Make reading a priority in your household."
"Puzzle Piece: you are a very important piece of your child’s education
Rubber band: to stretch imaginations
Band Aid: to mend the heart and mind
Candy: for the sweet satisfaction of learning something new
Q-Tip: to open the ears to the meaning of words
Gum: to remind you to always stick with reading"
You will need to find and/or purchase the following items for each bag: puzzle piece, rubber band, band aid, q tip, gum, candy, and a bag to put them in (such as a ziplock bag, brown paper bag, or small gift bag. I was able to find most of these items in my house (q tips), classroom (ziplock bags, rubber bands, puzzle pieces of an old puzzle), or nurse’s office (band aids). I ended up only needing to purchase candy and gum. I spend less than $5 total at the convenience store!
This item has a boy and girl version. Prints in black and white. Copy on colored paper and/or have students color for their parents.
