    I have a stuffed tiger that goes with a cute book called Stripe. He goes home in one of those handmade shoe bags. I send him home with each child for a night three- four times throughout the year. The first time I include a disposible camera and they take a picture of them with Stripe, and the next day we do a shared writing about something they did together. The second time I put an alpahbet letter in the bag with him and they find three things to put in the bag that starts with that letter and bring them, the next we sit in circle and the child shows and tells the three things and the children guess the letter. The third time they take him home they put something in the bag that is not a toy, the next day the children ask questions to try to guess what it is, this is great for working on open ended questions. The last time he goes home with a journal, but this time the children are pretty good writers so they write about something they did together. The children stay excited about him all year because they get several turns not just one to take him home. The children I tuaght three years ago still ask about him and when I teach siblings they remember him.
