Right before we left for the holidays, we had our bi-annual Book Swap. The week before the Book Swap, students turned in their gently used paperback children's books. The following week they pick out their "new" books. So exciting!
I have been doing Book Swaps for 3 years now and they are always a big hit. They are super easy to do with minimal set up and prep. December is the perfect time to do a Book Swap because students can clear off their shelves to make room for some "new" books. I also do a Book Swap in April after testing is over. It's a fun little celebration of learning and makes "testing week" a little more bearable.
