Take Home Backpack Activities!

I am very excited to be starting the whole Take Home Backpack thing with my kids.  I have seen teachers do it here and there but it was not until my own kindergartner got to participate in it that I really saw the impact it had!

So here is my FIRST Take Home Backpack Activity!

The idea is to create a backpack with a few items in it that the students can do at home with their families.  The backpack will go home with a different child each night and returned the next day.  Here's what's included in this set:

Teacher directions with ideas.

Stop by to see all these fun things:  a class book, a cover for your class book, a journal cover for the families to document their activities with the stuffed animal, and directions for the parents.
