Take home book bags are plastic bags with a collection of books inside that can be “checked out” by students. They are a great way for students to bring literature home on subjects they’re interested in. I used them in kindergarten and second grade, but the idea can be used at many elementary grade levels. This provided a way for the students to use my books without them being shoved in a box and forgotten. The book bags also included a spiral notebook for a school-to-home connection. The students and their families were allowed to leave a message, drawing or something on a page in the notebook. This was shared with the students periodically throughout the week. I worked in a very low-income school and the book bags were a great source of enjoyment for the students.
