For your classroom's Christmas planning: The perfect letter to communicate with students and parents about having a "gently used item" gift exchange. The expectations are clearly laid out for parents and students, and the procedure is clearly laid out for the teacher. This gift exchange works by having each participant bring a gift and then students get picked in a random order to select any gift from the table. Students do not know who will end up picking the gift they brought and the gift giver is a secret. Have fun with this one!
