Clip to ScrapBook #7

I have a class that has a number of kids who feel very entitled, and are dismissive of things I give them and do for them. When Halloween party time came around I told them they were on their own to plan their school Halloween party. They had to decide among themselves who would bring what, and I didn’t bring anything. A few kids remembered to bring chips and a package of cookies, and we had one two liter bottle of soda for 26 kids. They had to scrounge paper cups from another class. Other classes had an abundance and variety of treats with cute Halloween themed plates, napkins, etc. I think it made them realize that these things don’t just “happen” and it helped them appreciate the things I and their parents do for them.
