Remember these? Carpet Bags….

You might have been to a workshop where I have talked about my carpet bags or you might have read about them in a previous post. I have updated this post to contain the newest information and photographs. You can find all of the details about carpet bags in this new post.

I really like this idea. My students hardly ever use tables for whole group work time. They spend most of their time using clipboards and sitting on the carpet. Thanks for the inspiration! :)

Thanks,

Hmmm...I had 28 last year and 28 next year. The furniture didn't leave room for the children. Your post has me thinking! Thanks, Jayne (in Bibb)

I like the idea of the bags. So, do they keep all of the booklets in their bag to use as whole group sitting on the carpet? Does it take time for the kiddos to find the page they need or have trouble finding the page? Do they get the booklets mixed up?

Kim and Megan said...

Lee Ann,
I only add the booklets as I teach them. So the bag starts off empty with just a marker and a dry erase board. Then, as I introduce the items, they are added to the bag. All booklets are labeled with their names. It can be a little of a mess on the floor, but so worth it!

Where do they keep them when you are giving directions? In their laps next to them? Love the idea just trying to figure out the management of them.

The kids get the bags out of their baskets in the morning and place them on their square. We leave them there all day! The kids either lay them in front of them or beside them. I do train them not to touch the bags while I am teaching.
