Swaps are closed. :)

Hi Everyone,

Never did I imagine that TWO swaps would get filled so quickly–especially because of summer break! 🙂 THANKS for you interest and I can’t wait to see all the neat things everyone sends!  I’ll be posting pictures as the piles pile up in my living room!

All the swap spots have been taken now, and I’ve started a short waiting list for people who would like to swap if a spot opens.  If you think for any reason that you might not be able to participate, please let me know ASAP so I can get the spot filled with a new person.

Please send your swaps whenever you are done with them–I don’t want my mailman to hate me! 🙂

I plan to return your swaps to you ASAP and am going to try to use a flat rate priority box to send them back in–it may be an envelope though–we will just have to see the shape of things!

As I confirmed your swap spot, I attached a “details” sheet letting you know how to get your swaps to me.  PLEASE read that sheet! 🙂  If you did not get it from me, you can download it on either of the Swap Group pages–the pages where I’ve listed all your names.  Make sure you send that with your swap so everyone knows how to use the materials you are sending.

Also, please read the post about contributing for postage–I would REALLY appreciate donations to help with the cost.  A flat rate box costs $4.95 to mail, so at least $5 would be helpful.  If you are doing 2 swaps, please think about contributing $10 for two boxes or a heavy first (and probably) bigger box.

I’m already thinking about another swap–what would be helpful for you to have to swap.  Leave me a comment on this post and when I get enough ideas, I’ll post them for a vote!  I’m thinking another swap wouldn’t be until September–we could collect things for our second half of the first semester (my 2nd 9 weeks of school).

Let me know your ideas!

Kristen 🙂

    Any thoughts considered for Kindergarten level hands on science centers? Also, if there are people on the waiting list willing to take on 2 centers of math and/or literacy I would be willing as well. Thank you again!

  4. I would love to participate in a math swap that is strand specific to accumulate numerous activities. For example an entire swap specific to patterning, a swap specific to sorting, measuring, counting, adding, subtracting, etc… Ideally with varying levels of difficulty. We would then have 20 activities to pull from for each math strand.

      This is a great idea. I’m thinking we could do a math/science swap next (I’ve gotten lots of suggestions for both!). 20 spots for specific math activities and 20 spots for science related to a specific topic.
