Merry & Bright {Tips and Presents from Teach 3-4-5}

This time of year is such a fun and exciting time!! But..... for the elementary teacher it can get a bit chaotic!! I am teaming up with some fantastic 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade teacher-bloggers to share some tips for keeping this time of year MERRY & BRIGHT!!!

Each of us has a fun tip to share, plus a bundle of goodies to giveaway!!

The classroom can get a bit crazy during the holidays, and the energy of our students is through the roof!! While {organized} chaos can't always be avoided, there are some ways to make this time of year as exciting for teachers as it is for our kiddos!! Every year, our staff hosts a Secret Santa gift exchange to keep all of us teachers "Merry & Bright". Organizing a gift exchange is a great way to bring your staff together and to share the holiday spirit!! It adds a little excitement, mystery, and the joy of giving to these final, hectic weeks before winter break!! Here is a Secret Santa Survey to help get the party started!!

To keep things Merry & Bright for these final weeks before winter break, we are also giving away a bundle of goodies from the following bloggers...
