I just talked with my daughter in law a while ago and asked what are you doing? She and my grandaughter Nicole who is in first grade are making beaded name bracelets for everychild in my grandaughters room, 21 children in all. The cost so far has been about $10.00, she thinks they might run out of vowels and have to buy another bag of the letter beads. I said what made you decide to do that? They got a letter home from the 1sr grade teacher that each child in the class is expected to buy a gift for each child in the room. She suggested that they spend $1.oo each at he Dollar Store. That is $21.00 just for that not to mention a teacher and teacher helper gift. That to me is way off base. Draw names or buy girl?boy gifts and play a game to see who gets what present. What about the kids whos parents just can't spend that kind of money? I am pretty discussed about this. That is a lot to ask of parents. What do you think?
