Me Bag

At the beginning of the year, I have my students create a Me Bag. This is just a paper lunch bag that the students get a chance to decorate.

I like to use white paper bags because they look nicer and the kids like decorating them. I have the Me Bag placed on each students desk at Open House. I stapled a cute poem describing what to do with the bag. You can find the poem by clicking the link below.


The students decorate the outside of their bag with things they enjoy doing that most people would know just by looking at them or talking to them for a little bit. The students bring in 3-5 items in the bag. These items are special things that not many people would know right away.

I have my students share these during the first week of school. They really enjoy getting up in front of the class and talking about themselves. It gives me a chance to get to know the kids as well as the students getting to know one another.
