My first graders use these as their reading bags--to store their good fit books, a writing journal, pencils, reference materials, reading book and whatever else they may need for their independent reading time. I bought the original set 4 years ago, and I finally need to start replacing a few! Meanwhile, my teachers across the hall have been buying bags at dollar stores every summer, or trying to sew them and the bags never quite make it through even one year before ripping a whole in the bottom. These may be expensive, but I haven't had the headaches of having to think about them every year--and in the end, I've spent the same as everyone else!

Great reading workshop bins!
I bought a class set of these bags about 7 years ago and they are still going strong!! I have had one plastic sleeve to tear off, but otherwise they look pretty good. The kids use them as their reading bins for reading workshop. They hold their books, reading journal, stickies, and a pencil. They can just grab their bag and go!

I bought these for my class last year to use for their "just right" books and their readers workshop binder ( 1 inch binder & 5 books). They were perfect and very durable. I kept them this year and have had no problems. The front plastic label holders are just starting to tear off. The kids kept them in their desks and would take them to their reading spots. They we're great for indoor recess too. The kids would just grab their bag and bring it to lunch with them. They also kept stick notes and a pencil inside. I am buying replacements for next year in case they finally decide to start falling apart.

Store More Large Book Pouches-Primary
I use these pouches for Story Strechers in my Day Care. I label the outside with name of book and author. Inside I put the book, small articles that the children can use to help tell the story while i am reading it. Such as puppets, rhythming games, etc.
Anything that goes along with the story. The large ones are great, they can hold alot of articles.

rip too easily
I needed pouches to hang on the backs of chairs that we could store our everyday math tools in. I bought enough for my whole class and I would estimate 1/3 of them ripped before the end of the first year. I thought these would be a good sturdy investment. The items stored in them were not heavy or sharp. Most began ripping at the handle and then ripped down the back. I am disappointed they did not hold up.
