2023 Valentines Exchange

 Hi Friends,

Here's the link to sign up if you would like to send kid-made Valentines to 12 other classes and receive Valentines back from those classes:

Please don't mail food or candy.  Please do send a quick note about your school/city/state.  The kids love to see a picture of your class if that is allowed by your school.

While this Exchange does not get as big a response as the annual Gingerbread Man Exchange, I'm a sucker for Valentine's Day.  So... I'm going to offer it again this year.  If it does not get more traction, I will streamline down to just the Gingerbread Man Exchange going forward.

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.
