Clip to ScrapBook #5

When I gave treats or small surprises to my students and they failed to say thank you or complained I'd take it back right then and there and apologize for giving them something they didn't like. It was heartless but a lesson they needed to learn. I'd often get a look of shock from them but they remembered to thank me after that. I wasn't protecting my feelings I was teaching them to at least voice appreciation when presented with a small gift or kind gesture.
