Take Home Book Bags are a helpful parent resource for reading. The book bag homework provides parent reading strategies. Each one gives parent reading home tips. Take home book baggies will ensure home reading every night.
Thematic bags are an alternative reading log. Inside each bag are book suggestions, writing journals, games, fun family experience ideas and an activity sheet, all centered around one topic. They not only encourage reading at home, but also allow for family interaction, as well. Take Home Book Bags are especially beneficial for students who don’t have access to books at home.
What is in each bag?
In each bag, the teacher places 3-4 books that relate to the bag’s theme. I’ve included a list of suggestions for you! A writing journal also goes in the bag. I’ve included journal templates, but a spiral or composition notebook work as well. Additionally, there is a different game for each bag. Then there is a list of suggested fun activities for students to do with their families that relate to the bag’s topic. Lastly, there is an activity sheet for students to complete. There is even a book bag label for each one!
