Welcome back to another year of Ho-Ho-Holiday Gifts for Your Students Linky Party! If you haven't had the chance, be sure to check out last year's linky HERE for 25 wonderful and easy gifts to make your students this holiday season. We'll be adding to that list this year to keep the great ideas flowing!! As teachers, our time is short and our budget is small, so sharing what we've made for our class is a great way to get creative and save some cash and stress in the process! All you'll need to do is grab the image at the bottom of this post (or the one above) to add to your post of the gift(s) you've made for your class. It doesn't have to be a new post or even a super-complex idea, we're just making the search for ideas get a lot easier! Once you've added the image to your post, come back here to link up (being sure to choose your gift as the image on the linky), then share the word about this linky to all of your teacher friends! It's lots of fun and a great way to kick off the month of December. Not sure if you have the time to get this together before the holidays? No worries! This linky ends in January, so you have lots of time. And now, to share my gift to my kiddos: Rudolph Lollipops! I saw this on Pinterest, but couldn't find the original source for a while. I'm happy to say I finally tracked it down and it belongs to Erin at Once Upon a Donkey. She actually has three different characters (Elf, Reindeer, and Santa), so be sure to head over to read all about them HERE. For this project you will need: Brown construction paper or cardstock. I used cardstock since I find it cuts cleaner on my Silhouette Cameo. Cherry Tootsie Roll Pops, or a variety of flavors. I had tons left over from Halloween for this project, so I got lucky and used all red. Glue gun Sharpie Because time is short, I decided to use my Cameo to cut out the reindeer heads. I also only did one side and hot glued it to the red lollipops (for the Studio file, click HERE). I glued the tag that says, "Your teacher 'nose' you are an awesome student! Happy Holidays!" to the bottom of the stick as well. You can pick up that freebie HERE. I used a black Sharpie for the eyes and mouth and it went pretty quickly once I had the routine in place. I am so excited to have these waiting for the kids when they come in the day before Winter Break starts! I am a stickler about healthy food in the classroom, so I am sure this will be a welcome surprise :) Now, it's your turn to link up!

I never know what to give my students as gifts. Honestly, half the time I wait until the last minute, panic, and come up with some over the top corny gift. What I have come to realize is that my students don’t expect anything from me, and whatever I do give them they like because it comes from me. Here are a few cheap and free ideas that may help you, the busy teacher, out. Word Clouds Create a word cloud for each student using Wordle or Tagul. Students love to read things about themselves! Scholastic Books Scholastic Reading Club always has one dollar books. If you have bonus points, what better way to spend them?!? Are you out of time and know you won't get the books before you need them? Create a "Free Dollar Book" coupon for your students which will allow them to choose their own book on the next book order! You can download a free printable coupon to give your students HERE. Board Games Do you have old board games lurking in a closet? I'm betting that your students do too! Send a note home to parents asking for old board games that they would like to rid of. Wrap them up, and then as a class open them up! It will be like Christmas Day in your classroom. Your classroom will inherit games that can be played throughout the year. They'll love it, guaranteed! Movie/PJ Day What better way to end the last day before break with a movie day and hanging out in PJs? My students consider this a treat and love the opportunity. The Coupon Book My favorite gift that I’m using for the second year in a row is The Coupon Book. Best of all, it’s FREE to me. The only thing that I need to do is copy, cut, and staple. Then…ta-dah…it’s done! Here’s how it work. Each student receives a coupon book, and each book contains ten different coupons that students can use at their leisure. Students can use their coupons immediately, or they can save them and use them throughout the rest of the school year. Coupons include: Free homework pass Choose your own class job for the week Extra computer time Lunch with teacher Be the line leader for the day Read a book to the class Sit by a friend for the day Errand runner Write in pen for the day Choose a book for the teacher to read to the class You can download the coupon book for free HERE. It's a gift that keeps on giving. Teaching With Simplicity Teachers Pay Teachers Facebook Pinterest Instagram

Are you in need of an expensive student gift? This one cost me $3 for 30 ornaments. You can personalize them with a vinyl cutter or by hand lettering them with a sharpie. Materials: Plastic Poster Board (find at your local craft store), Used Crayons, Sharpener, Sharpie or 2 Sheets of Vinyl, Hot Glue Gun First you'll need to cut the poster board into your desired shape. You can use a die cut, scissors or a vinyl cutting machine. I used my Cricut for these. Next I used my hot glue gun to melt a circle opening at the top of every circle. You could also use a sturdy hole punch. Next I cut the names out of vinyl. If you don't have a cutter you could hand write them with a sharpie marker. Then I sharpened crayons to sprinkle on the back of every circle. Less is definitely more when it comes to placing the wax on the circle. After you place the wax on the circle you'll have to melt them at 120 degrees in the oven for about 2 minutes. If your circle starts to roll at the edges, place it in your freezer and gently press the center down until it cools flat. This is the final product. You could tie a ribbon on it or give it with a suction cup. They make great sun catchers. I'm giving my students the ornament with this tag. You can find it for free by selecting the photograph below.
