The idea is relatively simple and we have all encountered it. A kid brings something to school and even despite a friendly warning/reminder, they continue to play with it. The mighty May Bag now enters into the equation. Once a toy goes in there, it stays until May (dun dun dun!!). The last day of school I go through the May Bag and it is always pretty funny because the kids either had completely forgotten about their item or no one even knows who it belongs to. I had to make a rule that if there is any arguing over an item and its owner, then it gets "put away until next year" (aka usually thrown away).
Here's your very own May Bag sign for your classroom. Make sure you choose a jazzy, flashy bag - the more attention getting the better! ;) Click the picture below for the link to download. Enjoy!
