I use this activity to get my students to use their devices for communication and also for fun…what kid doesn’t like to “open” gifts!?
I use birthday wrap because then you can do this all activity all year on your students birthdays…and hopefully won’t offend anyone. When the kids open the gift they look at the item they found then they will pick the card for what they think they could or would do with that item. Ex. A gift with glasses in it they can pick “put on” and then they can actually put them on.
*You can do for Christmas just change the wrapping and I put the gifts the gifts under a small tree on my bookcase and have the students pick up the gift they want to open.
