Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

Feel free to copy and edit this activity changing the questions to better meet your desired outcomes. The spirit of the activity is for students to explain what their book bin is for and what it is populated with so that others can understand this crucial component to our literacy growth program. Another option is for students to take out the contents of their book bin, neatly display the contents on top of a work surface, and use photo from above to snap a picture of the inside. They could use the label tools and pointer arrow to give it to her of the photo.
