Today, I was SO excited! I have been pondering how I'm going to be putting some "books in a bag" together (this was supposed to be LAST summer's project, but I'm determined to get to it this summer). I walked into Kohls (where I got an unbelievable deal, btw--more about that later)...and there was Skippyjon Jones! Not only Skippyjon Jones, but FIVE hardcover books about him! AND...the piece d'resistance...A Skippyjon Jones backpack! It took me a whole 3 seconds to realize---here is my first 'book in a bag'--or really, my first "Traveling Mascot bag". I'm going to make a journal, and some simple activities, and will have parents keep track
of what their children do with Skippyjon! Woo Hoo! I'm going to go
back tomorrow to grab a set of the notecards, so that I can write notes
from Skippyjon to the students.
So easy---and so fun! Thanks again, Kohls!
