Remember how not all our students have experienced things we assume they have? Like the Combos?
Well, not all of Nicole’s students have experienced a certain Christmas tradition.
Since seeing them hung above her white board, kids have said things like:
“I’ve never had a stocking before.”
“This stocking is just for me?”
“Santa knows where your room is??”
I realize not all teachers can do this for all their students (especially EL teachers!), but Nicole has a reasonable-enough caseload at one of her schools that she was able to make this work.
She even went to the dollar store and bought certain gifts for each individual, based on what she knows they will like.
Just don’t tell her other school!
