Holiday Gifts for my Students

Okay, so let's get real.  We love, love, love our little ones, but buying gifts for each and every precious little face in our classroom can be EXPENSIVE!  Here is my thrifty solution to give each and every one of my 22 little sweeties a meaningful gift that won't break the bank.

I snatched up these books from Scholastic when they were on sale for $1 each.  I used my points, and they were free!  Also, it's always one of their favorite books.

I grabbed 100 CD's for $20 on Amazon.

I found these colorful "Memorex Keepers" soft plastic cases at Target for less than $6 for 50 of them. 

I burned each little one a CD with 32 of our favorite songs.  I have done this every year and they love it!  The best part is that it only cost me 32 cents per child!  Yay :)

I also printed up labels for each CD and book.  Here is a free download of the book labels.  It looks funky here, but I promise the font is super cute when you download it.  Enjoy!
