I am currently a 1st grade teacher in an at-risk school in NC. It is a small rural school where many of the children have very limited opportunities for enrichment outside of the home. My desire is to bring some of the outside world into their homes. I have designed homework book bags for my students to take home and use. These book bags have proved to be a very useful tool in developing knowledge and interest in my students for various subjects. Each book bag is centered on a particular theme. I currently have 6 book bags: an Art Pack, an Ocean Pack, a Rock Pack,a Music Pack an Invetors Pack and a Clifford Pack. Each book bag contains various books both fiction and non-fiction on each particular theme as well as activities and games. Each book bag also contains a “mascot” such as a Leonard DiVinci (Art Pack) or Rainbow Fish (Ocean Pack). Each bag is supplied with crayons, paints, clay or other items for the various activities. This is a joy for the students since they often do not have items like these in their home. I would love to create more book bags now that I have seen their success but am lacking funds to do this. I have ideas of creating An Inventors Pack, A Scientist Pack, A Cooking Pack, A Forest Pack etc. I have a vision of expanding this to not only my class but to the other classes in my school. It's exciting to think of how many smiles we can put on the faces of children who have no books or other forms of exploring what interest them besides a T.V or school. The great thing about this idea is that it will benefit not only my current class but future classes as well. I only need to re-supply the consumable items such as paper, crayons and such. I implore your support to help me help create imagination, creativity and the desire in my students to explore the world beyond their front doors. It is wonderful to think that one of my packs might encourage a child to grow into a future college graduate or just plant the seed of desire for learning.
