Pack it In, Read it Up

My students need 50 clear front pack and read bags to store their just right books.

My Students

Goodbye Ziploc bags...hello book bags! Currently, we use Ziploc bags as our book baggies and they get worn and torn very quickly. Ziploc bags are not durable and do not help protect our books. My students need reusable, durable book bags to store their books.

My 1st Grade Dual Language class consists of 48 students, 24 native Spanish speakers and 24 native English speakers.

Over fifty percent of my student population receives free or reduced lunch. My students receive instruction in Spanish and English. My students vary in their abilities and are at various stages of language acquisition. The setup of my class results in improved social relationships among my students because they come from different linguistic and ethnic backgrounds. My students are very comfortable with each other and they tend to socialize often which in turn facilitates new learning. They have created close relationships in an environment that allows for emotional and intellectual growth. They encourage each other to think, take risks, and feel comfortable in their newly acquired language. My students are aware of their academic expectations and have a positive attitude towards learning.

My Project

My students will store their reading materials in their book baggie. They'll pull them out for Daily 5, then put them away all tidy at the end of our Daily Five rotation. Book baggies will give my students efficient access to the reading materials they have self selected. My students will take their book baggie to their favorite reading spot in our classroom. They will read by themselves or with a partner. Book baggies will help minimize distractions because they will be easily accessible so that the learning activities are not interrupted. The book baggies have a clear front and students will be able to clearly see and identify their reading materials. Students will learn to organize their reading materials and protect our books so we can continue to use them year after year.

Classroom organization is key is creating an effective learning environment and minimizing distractions.

Teaching my students the importance of organization and making them responsible for their books, and as much of the organization as possible, is important to me. Your donation will help purchase book baggies for my students. They'll no longer have to stress about having a torn bag, losing a book, or not being able to close the bag. Thank you for your support!
