Currently - December (Plus Freebie For Followers!)

I love Farley's Currently posts and I try to participate whenever I can remember to get it done - or when I have a few extra minutes.  I thought it was interesting that she had a RAK (Random Act of Kindness) because of something that happened on Friday.  I have a girl in my class who has a very difficult home situation.  She came into the class bawling on Friday morning.  The other girls in my class told me that she was crying because she was wearing boys shoes.  Supposedly her younger brother had thrown her shoes up on the roof, so she was wearing his shoes which were 2 sizes too small. 

I called my hubby and he was gracious enough to bring down some socks and a new pair of shoes - girls shoes.  I never would have thought of doing this in the past, but something made me just do it.  Have you ever done something above and beyond for a student?

    I often have kids with hard lives in my class...but two stand out. I decided to do a secret Santa for one little boy in my class, his sister and mom. We gathered everything up including a tree and Christmas dinner and my husband and sons went to deliver the gifts (I did not want him to know it was from me). They still tear up when they talk about the reception they got that day. The second was a combined effort of a few at my school. This time my husband borrowed a Santa suit and he went with a son and son-in-law.
