For the past few years, I have I carried a purple LL Bean backpack to and from school every day. I always have my school Chrome laptop in it because I hate using the BIG case that came with the it! There are nights I do school work on it and there are nights it does not move from my backpack.
Other things inside my backpack include pens, hand lotion, sanitizer, lip gloss, perfume, tissues, band aids, a copy of a blank report card, a new book called Fostering Resilient Learners – Strategies for Creating a Trauma – Sensitive Classroom (for a book study), water, mittens, a hat, an extra pair of glasses, trinkets for my classroom store, my classroom keys, an extra lanyard, small bottle of lavender and a mini notebook for notes.
Why do I carry all those things in my backpack? I don’t really use most of them. I think I have the things in there just in case I may need them. Do you have things in your to and from school bag that you don’t really need? What kind of bag do you carry to and from school. I have considered purchasing a Thirty One bag but love having a backpack type bag! Do I really need a bigger bag for school things? Stop and look in your bag today…what do you have it it?
