I love finding new products to use in my classroom that make my life a little bit easier! : ) For the past year I have been toying with the idea of creating carpet bags for my class. We use white boards together on the carpet almost daily and it's such a pain (and waste of time) to regather these materials all the time. I would love to have bags already put together with a white board, dry erase markers and an eraser. Plus, I think my kids would take better care of their stuff knowing that they are stuck with it a while : ) The biggest problem I have had with my carpet bag idea was storage. I don't have a space to hang 20+ bags! So, seat sacks seemed like my best option. It would be perfect for every kid to have their own bag hanging on their chair, plus they could use the materials at their seats and during center time too! I was sold! Then, I started looking at seat sack prices. YIKES! Plus seat sacks are designed to stay on a chair, so bringing supplies to the carpet would still be a pain. Then, I met my perfect match...
These bags are exactly what I have been looking for! The are sold in sets of 4 and 5 and come in many different colors! My classroom is full of my primary colors, so this is the perfect set for me!
I love the slide in name slot so that student names could be changed from year to year. The best thing about these bags is that they have an elastic strap so that they can be easily stored on a chair!
They also come in different sizes. I have the 12x14 size in my classroom. They are perfect for carpet bags!
The zipper pocket is a wonderful addition and helps keep things organized! These bags would also be perfect to go on chairs at the guided reading table to hold supplies or for older students who switch classes!
I absolutely love this product and so does everyone else! These are on back order until October, but have no fear! I have TWO sets of Pack-N-Reads to give away below plus a special deal!
