I've got a great gift idea that you can give your students this year. Best of all, it's FREE!!

Look at the list below and choose five or ten that you think your students would enjoy. Run them off and make a "2019 Gift Card Book." Pass them out the last day before vacation and you'll have children smiling and "planning and plotting" how they are going to use their gift cards when they return to school in 2019. 

*Adapt these to the age and interest of your students.  A four year old might be thrilled to choose the book for story time, but a first grader might prefer being excused from a written assignment.
