Unwrapping a Book a Day in December!

Happy Tuesday, friends!
Have you been enjoying the Mega Cyber Sale on TPT?
I sure have! I have snagged some great deals - and plan to do a little bit more shopping before the night is over :)
I am linking up with my bud, Holly, for her
"Tried It Tuesday" linky:
Today I want to share an idea that I'm trying for the month of December...

Each day in December my students will unwrap a book for me to read to them :) 

This is a super simple ideas that has been
so motivating in my classroom.
 I tell the students in the morning that I am "on the lookout" for the special student who will unwrap the book of the day. You should see how quickly they sit up straight, zip their lips, and fold their hands :) 

They know that these books have been specially picked and wrapped by me, so they listen with rapt attention. I originally got this idea from a mom at my old church who did this with her kids. I love the idea of seeing books as gifts and unwrapping once each day until Christmas, so I decided to try it with my students.

Whatever it takes to foster a love of reading...
