Valentine Exchange 2022

Who is up for a Classroom Valentine Exchange?  It has been a couple of years since we have done this, so let's share some friendship!  Since some of you have around 12 students and some of you have around 20 students, I set up the Sign-up genius for two different class sizes.  I hope that makes it easier.

2020 Gingerbread Exchange Goes Virtual

 Hi Friends,

The Gingerbread Exchange will be a little different this year.  Instead of physically mailing paper gingerbread men to other classrooms, each class will email a photo of their creation to twelve other classes.  Including a letter about your class and location in the email is also encouraged.  Please don't email any photographs of students in your class. 

Each teacher can print out the gingerbread man photographs that you receive to show them to your class and/or display them on a map.

I would love to be included in these emails so that I can share photos of the paper gingerbread men here on

Here is the Sign Up Genius Link.  Please DO NOT provide your physical address this year, just your email address.

2019 Gingerbread Exchange

It's time for the annual Gingerbread Man Exchange!  Each December, wonderful Pre-K and Kindergarten classes have been mailing paper creations to each other and learning a little geography in the process. If you would like to participate this year, the deadline to sign up is November 27, 2018.  It is fine to send out a teacher written letter done on the printer.

The gingerbread men must be mailed between December 1 and December 4, 2019. Gingerbread men may be decorated with glitter, yarn, fabric, stickers, markers, crayon, paint, etc. (no candy or food items.) Please include a short note from your class and if possible a photo of the students. You will mail one gingerbread man to each class on the list you sign up on.  You should receive one gingerbread man from each of the classes on your list.

If your class would like to send out and receive 12 paper gingerbread men, sign up once.  If you want to exchange 24 paper gingerbread men, you may sign up on two lists.
You may notice that there is an extra sign up slot on your list, that is because your class will not be sending a gingerbread man to your own address.

When signing up, PLEASE LOOK to see who has already signed up on a particular list.  Everyone wants to send and receive mail from as wide a variety of places as possible.  Try to sign up on a list that does not yet have a school from your state signed up. (For some states like Georgia and Texas, this in unavoidable because we get a big response.  Let's try to limit each list to two schools from these states.)  Please don't sign up more than one class from the same school on the same list. I will be checking the sign up to see if it is filling up and we need to add additional lists.  YOU CAN edit your own sign up if you realize that you provided the wrong zip code, etc.

Sign up HERE.
