I think school stuff is the perfect gift.  And who doesn’t like candy?

I would buy a book, game, or puzzle and donate it to their classroom library with a little note inside telling them how much you enjoy working with them.  The kids will get a lot of use out of it, and in my experience, things like pencils or candy go unsed or forgotten.  That was what I did during student teaching and I plan on doing that again this year for my students.  I am thinking about buying them a game we can all play together.

My mother who was a teacher always gave her kids this Christmas activity books (ususally found at the dollar store or other grocery store) which have connect the dots, color pages, mazes, other fun games to play.  They are usually pretty cheap 50 cents per piece and the kids LOVE them.  She would also give them the 8 in a box crayons and a brand new pencil to go with it.

Go to the dollar store or look up bulk items on http://www.dollartree.com  – I would make up some party/grab bags for the kiddies.  =)  I can look up some stuff for you.

@regberadaisy: i was thinking one per student so they can take it home and put it on the tree – they feel special, the parents arent stuck with candy/goodie bag stuff on the floor and you can buy a box of them pretty cheap from dollar store

@regberadaisy: I figured any extra can be donated to children in need.  =) It’s what I used to do for the kids my Kappa Delta Pi chapter would work with.

@regberadaisy: That seems like it would be difficult for 3rd graders

Somewhere packed in the box of Christmas stuff at my moms house is still an ornament one of my fav teachers gave me with my name on it. It was like one of those cheapo non-breakable baubles that comes in huge packages and written on with paint pen but I thought it was the coolest thing ever when I was a 2nd grader! 

The puzzle things seem cool, but likely to lose pieces or be frustrating because they are kind of hard. Giving them a gift at all is sweet though!
