I like to do something each year with my classes to remember them by but I always like it to be useful (admittedly I am more of a pitcher than a keeper).
I hadn’t decided what to do until the other day when I had to search the house for a very long time for a missing library book. I’m trying to use the library a lot. We don’t need any more (read: there are WAY too many already) books in the house until a serious clean-out is done and I’m trying to save money. The saving the money part is negated when you lose the books though.
In comes this year’s remembrance item. A library book bag!
I just got a plain tote and a package of fabric markers.
The criteria that I gave my “kids” was to write 1) something about books in your first language if it isn’t English OR 2) Your favourite book now OR 3) Your favourite book as a little kid.
I passed it around my 90+ students while they were doing their final English presentations and this is what I got.
Wouldn’t this be fun for a birthday activity?
