I do my own so this is very helpful. Is there anyway to send post a pdf bibliography of all the books used in these bags and also a materials list? It would be so much easier to gather the materials and put together the bags. I also include a journal in my bags so the families can add a picture of them doing the activity or reading together and they can write a blurp about it! I have been looking for something like this and was so thrilled to find this resource.
I would love more. I'm ordering the books through thriftbooks and getting the bags ready to use for this fall. I read through the materials for the "Oceans" literacy bag and thought it was fabulous. However, I was disappointed when I didn't find any literacy bags for 2nd grade.
I will likely make some myself, but as teachers there's so much that we make ourselves. It would be so helpful to find this kind of resource on your awesome web site. Can you offer more bags for the pre-K crowd? As a member of a home daycare association, we would really benefit from those! These are wonderful. Thanks for sharing - they are helpful and they are designed attractively, as well - very much appreciated. These literacy bags are a wonderful idea. This will come in handy for homeschool parents.
You can make all kinds of bags in whatever subject you are working on at home. They can even be grade oriented.

Thanks so much for the idea. It opens up a whole new realm for homeschooling families. I would also love to see some Spanish materials. Librarian, this is not so much for the kids but so the parents who are not benefiting from daily English instruction can feel connected to their child's education through this activity. These literacy bags would be great for my struggling readers.
Are you considering bags for older readers? I used to do math bags for my kindergarden students to take home. I was working at a school where I knew the kids did not have manipulatives and such and I also knew the parents did not know exactly how and what to do with the kids.

I made a ziplock full of activities that included directions and plenty of various manipulatives. I did it very inexpensively with dollar store items. The parents loved it and so did the kids. They were very proud of their bags! I can see this being the same! I love this idea. It is a great home school connection. Parents often want to work with their kids but just don't know the different things they can do and try.

Great idea! Please add more literacy bags for Kindergarten. Also include the translations to spanish. I would do the translations contact me at this e-mail mgesparza prodigy. I think your family literacy bags are wonderful, but I think it would help if you would provide a site from which to purchase the books.

The Adventure Packs are great, but I would love to see sets for middle schoolers!
These are great! Would love to see more preschool age ones. I love this idea! Do you have plans for extending it to or even 5th grade?? Please, please more for Pre-K. Thx for share! Pretty great blog. Would enjoy them even more in Spanish! These are wonderful resources; do you anticipate writing any literacy bags for older youth? These are great they will help me supplement what my child is learning in school. Ditto on the Spanish!
