This year I'm going to be using Beanie Babies to teach decoding and comprehension skills. I found the idea on Pinterest here. I only need certain beanies and I have found at least one of each in the 2 big tubs of beanies that I have kept from my own children. I would like to have one beanie for each student to use as we practice the skills which means I'm looking for about 6 of each animal. When I put a call out on Facebook asking for beanies from my local friends, my friend, KimberlyW from Texas suggested that I collect one from each state. Hmmm, good idea! If each beanie came with some information about a state and school I can incorporate reading and geography. I'll make a tag with the information for each animal. Thanks, Kim!
So, here are the beanies that I'm interested in collecting:
If you have one that you would like to donate to my class, including the shipping cost, please fill out the Google Form and then I will send you my mailing address.
