Literally Hands-On

Bags at the dollar store for each student to store their independent reading books, reading response notebooks, writer's notebooks, word work notebooks, post-it notes and a pencil. I put a command hook on each desk for them to keep their bag. It has been so much easier than finding a place to store bulky book boxes and the kids love to carry them around the classroom.
