Christmas White Elephant Book Exchange
Just a reminder of the Christmas party activity that I do with my students every year. I have the students bring in a wrapped new book that is $5 or less. Then at the party we will do a white elephant exchange with the books. I currently have the most recent Scholastic Book orders open if you would like to purchase your book through there. There are MANY books that fall in that price range. Orders are open until tonight in order to get them in on time.
Please let me know if this would be a financial burden for your family. We have resources to help! Below you will find the scholastic information needed for purchasing a book. I told the students about this activity this morning, and they were VERY excited! Please let me know if you have any questions!
