What To Get Your Students This Holiday Season

Over the past 12 years I have wanted my students to leave for winter vacation with something that they can use that will help them in school. This gift has been books.

When the Scholastic Book Orders from December arrive, I pass them out to the students. I tell them if you could get a book from the order that is $4 or less, what would it be? I have them write it down on a tiny slip of paper and then I go around and collect them. Many students will ask, "Why?" But I just say that I am getting ideas of good books to buy for the classroom. Little do they know that they will be each receiving the books that they have written down.

I am able to accomplish this by using bonus points (if I have enough) or using some of my own money. I find this more rewarding then buying candy canes or candy for the students instead.

I know many school districts and classrooms are starting to do away with holiday parties and gift giving, but I am thankful that I can put a smile on my students' faces, and have them leave for vacation with a book to read. Who knows, maybe that will keep them from playing video games for a couple of hours!
