Our Holiday Giving Project was so exciting and such a special time! I asked my students to bring in their items a few days before we got out for the holidays. We had a gift wrapping party in the afternoon, and I taught them all how to wrap a present with style! You would think that 5th graders would know how to wrap a gift, but I learned the first time I did this project that most had never been taught. So I borrowed a box of crayons for each student from the supply room, and they had to practice wrapping that box until it was perfect before I would let them touch the rolls of wrapping paper. Each student chose a partner and they teamed up to wrap gifts. Then we took a class picture at the end of the day. You can see the joy of giving all over their faces - what a wonderful lesson for students of any age!
