    "me bags"

    I did this activity too on the first and second day of school. The kids (4th grade) loved being the center of attention so early in the year and we displayed the contents of their bags for class viewing. This was a great way for me to learn about what is really important in my kids' lives. Things that they brought may look like nothing to an outsider, but when the kids were able to explain the importance of each item, it really opened my eyes. My principal happened to be walking by when I was doing this activity on the 2nd day and she ended up staying to watch the rest of the class share their bags. She was impressed that the kids were so eager to get up in front of the class and speak so early in the year. (something that I've found many kids dread unless you start early and do frequently) Good luck!!
