My kids are each getting a Christmas book that I got free
using my Scholastic bonus points. I also got them reindeer
antler headbands . I got the headbands 50% off the day after
Christmas at the Dollar Tree. They came in a 2 pack/.50
cents. So I basically spent .25 cents/student this year!
In past years I have given the kids a can of Playdough and a
Christmas cookie cutter. I usually was able to find cookie
cutters in a 6 pack at the dollar tree.
I also often buy a classroom gift (usually a new toy).
Although this gift is more money, it stays in the classroom
for future classes to use. Last year I bought Tinker Toys
and the kids LOVED them! This year I bought Zoobs.
Hopefully they will love them too. This gift is always from
