Product Description
A Secret Santa Book Exchange is my favorite way to strengthen our classroom community during the holidays! My students love the challenge of keeping a secret from their friends, and I love helping them do something kind for their classmates.

The process is simple: students choose a classmate's name from a hat, buy one new or gently used book using that child's reading inventory and then reveal themselves on Secret Reveal Day. It's a small gesture that teaches patience and inspires students to spread kindness beyond the project and throughout the classroom in other ways.

**This product comes with holiday AND non-holiday resources, so if you have students who can't or don't celebrate Christmas, you will still be able to use this resource.

Included:
-Permission slips
-Reading inventory
-Editable names slips for drawing
-A class pledge
-Gift tags - both Christmas and generic book tags
-Secret Reveal Day signs for your classroom
-Ideas to extend the book exchange and make this an event your students will remember forever
-Suggestions for students who can't afford a book
-Book pairing suggestions

In all of the years I've done secret book exchanges, I have never had a child opt out of participating. To us, this seems like a small gesture, but the impact it makes on our students and classroom culture is enormous.

*This product comes in a zip file - one PDF and one PowerPoint with the editable pages.
