Has anyone found a great way to clean the fabric take home bags? I'd love to hear any tips for cleaning.
Also, I'm sure there is a reason, but why are there not lines in the Writing Books for students to write on. I often find my 1st graders and K's have a hard time keeping their writing organized when they encounter such a large white space.

I wash the fabric bags in my washing machine on a delicate cycle.

Great question. Just as the early books have nothing on the page of text (other than a clean white space with dark black print), we want the letters and words to stand out boldly for the child to see in writing as well. F&P suggest you use a dark fine marker and white tape or address labels for error corrections. Some children have a challenge seeing the print as separate from the lines. It becomes even more of a challenge when pencils are used on lined paper. It is suggested that the teacher move to lined paper when she/he sees the child able to organize print on the page.

Thanks for your question!
