This kit includes everything you need to implement M.O.N.K.E.Y. Books in your classroom. A MONKEY Book is a 3 ring binder that you send home with your students EVERY day. It provides a no-excuse method of keeping everyone informed and on top of what is going on at school (including you, parents and students alike). This kit includes EVERYTHING you need to start this in your classroom, from an explanation to parents to all of the labels you need to label the books. As an addes bonus, the kit includes a 2011-2012 academic year calendar (monkey themed, of course!). Implementing this system in my classroom was the best thing I ever did. It is so worth the extra time and effort it takes to put them together and also instills responsibility within the students.
