Use this 'Me Bag' tag on a brown paper bag or something similar. At the beginning of your school year, give each student their own. Each student takes the bag home and decorates it with things that interest them as well as putting a few special items inside. Students then bring the bag back to school and complete a 'Show and Tell.'
The purpose of this activity is to hear and learn about your students. It also allows you to see and hear how your students speak in front of their peers.
