PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

If your kids love the book series "Fly Guy" by Tedd Arnold then they will LOVE getting to use this fun take-home bag!

As an extension writing activity, each student will have the chance to take Mr. Fly home as their new family pet (a printable Fly is included in the packet-the stuffed animal Fly is not provided, but information about where to purchase him can be found HERE). The journal allows them to write about their family and time with Mr. Fly, as well as give their opinion about whether he makes a good pet. They will also get to draw or include a printed pictures of their family and time together. All of the instructions are included in a letter from Mr. Fly that goes in the front of the journal. The student will then bring everything back the next day to share with the class--this is a great speaking and listening activity as well as a great way to connect home and school! It is also perfect for the beginning of the year, a family/community unit, or as a reading and writing extension activity!

Altogether this packet includes:
-Instructions on making and using the take-home bag
-Journal Cover (in color & black and white)
-Instruction Letter from Mr. Fly (in color & black and white)
-Journal Pages
-name cards (for choosing a student each day-in color & black and white)
-a printable Mr. Fly (incase you don't have a stuffed animal fly-in color & black and white)

I hope your students enjoy this activity as much as mine do! Let me know if you have any questions!
