I know that this is supposed to be a math blog, and math is where I have all of my good ideas, but I just had to share a project that I am working on right now. I am making Take Home Literacy Bags!!! (I am calling them "Literacy Bags" and not "Book Bags" because I am big on using vocabulary where I can) I already have Take Home Math Kits (my students love these) and I wanted to invest the same amount of enthusiasm into reading. My wow, wonderful, family bought me 30 canvas bags! I immediately wanted to decorate them (of course)! But, my good pal Mrs. Sykes had a stellar idea. She suggested making tags to attach to the bags so that I can change the books out more frequently!
So, here is my Little Critter by Mercer Mayer bag in progress. (Everything still needs to be laminated, but I am SOOO excited so I had to share!)
I found the Little Critter Paper Doll at: DLTK! He has several other outfits, but I liked the PJ's.
More to come later!!!!
