Flip Flop Book Swap for Read Across America Day

  We have lots of activities planned for Read Across America Day on March 2, but my personal favorite is the Flip Flop Book Swap I’m hosting in the library!  Students are bringing books from home that they no longer read so they can swap them for books that other kids are bring in.  Students must have their parents permission of course, and their books should be in good condition.  Students receive one ticket for each book they bring in, and on Friday they can trade their tickets for books.  We also have some extra books that have been donated to the swap so that everyone has a good selection from which to choose.

Updated to add a photo and some statistics:

Students traded 95 books during our Seuss Swap! We also had an additional 15 books donated to the swap to provide more choice for students.

Has your school ever done a book swap?  Please leave a comment and share your experience!
