Student Gift Exchange


Senior Member
I wanted to share this idea before everyone begins planning their classroom parties. I have used it the past few years, and my students just love it. Each of my students brings a book for this exchange...a book that either a girl or boy would enjoy.


This website also has some other great game ideas for your class party.

Fun Idea

Thanks for sharing. I have played this game at a baby shower before and did not think of doing it with books in my classroom. I think I might give it a try this year!

Book exchange

I've done this for years, but with another story. It is about the Left and Right families. I have copies of it at school, but I believe you can google and find it. I have also done this game when I pass out their gift from me (everyone gets the same book).

gift echange

I love this left right story. It will be perfect to use for our gift exchange. I have each child bring a new ornament and each child goes home with an ornament. After the ornaments are opened I date them with a marker. Parent love the idea and kids like it too.


Left Right Gift Exchange
