    Literacy Backpacks
    By Mr. Mark

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I send digital cameras home in my literacy backpacks.

    Each backpack contains a stuffed animal, a picture book with a character that corresponds to the stuffed animal (ie: stuffed lion with "Leo the Late Bloomer"), a journal and a pack of crayons.

    Students read the picture book and write an entry in the journal about what they did with the stuffed animal (these poor animals have been to the grocery store, soccer practices, family dinners...). They use the cameras to document the adventures of the animals, then we do a writing assignment using the pictures.

    I have three backpacks that rotate among the class. The students and parents absolutely LOVE them!
