Yesterday was our last day before break, so we did a book exchange in each of my classes. Quote from class one: "It's like a Christmas miracle!" Each student was happy with his/her surprise book! It was amazing, especially in that first class, how each book fit each student exactly without it being planned. I just told each student to bring in a wrapped paperback, as gender-neutral as possible, and then we played a version of "Hot Potato" to exchange them. Everyone, in all four classes, did a great job picking out books! Now everyone has a book to read over break. Awesome - let the reading begin!
