Wouldn't be right?

Our student council is selling Candy Grams. Our school has three third grade classes, of which I teach one. There are two girls-one in each of the other two classes that talk to me at recess. I am bored beyond belief at recess yard duty as the kids can do almost anything, it lasts for 20 minutes, and I am in one area. So to have two kids come talk to me, is a great relief. I don't have either girl at all. I would like to get them each a Candy Gram. Part of me says that they aren't my students, so I can. The other part of me says, it doesn't matter it wouldn't be right.

It was hard enough when my student (who sometimes joins them) wanted one of the girls to come to our class' Chanukah party. It took everything in my power to say no.

I wouldn't. Even if they aren't your students, because some got some and others didn't, it can make kids feel left out or feel like you are playing favorites. As a teacher, I personally wouldn't buy any student a candy gram, unlesss I only bought for everyone in my own class. I wouldn't want to it to make it seem like I was playing favorites or make anyone feel left out. It's bad enough when they feel left out because of a student, but to feel left out because of a teacher, is much worse, in my opinion. Just my take.

That is what I figured and what my mom said. I was just hoping that someone would assure me that it was okay.

I have been good and one of the two girls is Jewish and I have stuff left from Sunday school that I need to get rid of. I keep wanting to give it to her. For that I decided, I sometimes see her mom on Wednesdays so I keep thinking I will give it to her mom on one of those days.

Thanks, even if it wasn't the answer I wanted.

I wouldn't start a precedent like that. You also might find yourself inundated with "visitors" and could not reciprocate them all with a gift.

Send it with a nice message about what kind- thoughtful or whatever kind of student they are.
Just don't sign it. It will make them feel special and no one else will know.

I would let their parents know how kind the are. Hopefully the parents would compliment them. Years ago I actually had a student come find me to tell me thank you for complimenting him to a parent.
