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.
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!
PLEASE HAVE YOUR BOOK IN BY THURSDAY, 12/17!
Classroom Party Donations
On Friday afternoon on 12/18, we will have our classroom Christmas party. The big activity we do is the White Elephant exchange, but of course the students LOVE to eat! I am in need of the following donations. Please send me an email if you are willing to donate something. I will then let you know what I still need. We have 26 students all together.
