Picture Book Swap


Hi friends! If you've been following me on Instagram, then you know we've been doing the #classroombookaday this year. This fun little idea was created by Jillian Heise and you can read all about it here. I highly recommend doing it in your classroom. It has so many benefits and the kids love it! 

Today's post is all about a picture book swap! You do not have to be participating in the #classroombookaday in order to do the picture book swap (but seriously, you HAVE to do #classroombookaday...so amazing!)

Here's how the picture book swap will work. 

If you want to participate, fill out this google form by this Friday (11/14/17)

I will pair up each participant and message everyone to let them know who they are paired with. 

Once you have your partner, you will email/message each other to get the mailing info. 

As a class, decide on a picture book to send to your partner's classroom. Involve your students! Get them to write a letter to the other class explaining why they decided on that particular picture book, what they loved about it, what it reminded them of, what they learned from it, etc. 

Once you get the picture book, share with your class! (the fun part!!)

If you share your swap, use the hashtag #picturebookswap so we can see all the fun! :)

Happy swapping! :)
