I love using these lunch size paper bags in my classroom! Every time I go to the grocery store I have to pick up a pack. I use them for puppets and a way to help my kinders retell stories!
I love the way you can decorate the front and then keep all the small pieces you are using all in one place! It is a great way to send home activities you want parents to reinforce!
I am going to have my children retell the Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bell using these lunch bags. After we read the story several times, I am going to use the colored pictures in the pocket chart to help model the retelling. (See earlier post)
Then using the black and white pictures above, the children will color and glue the old lady and title on the front of the bag. They will color the rest of the pieces and cut them out. Then the kinders can practice retelling the story to a partner by placing each piece in the bag. They can take the bag home and practice retelling the story to their parents or who ever takes care of them and loves them.... (my way of recognizing grandparents, etc... who may take care of my sweeties at home. :)
