Actually, I teach in a high poverty school. I have no idea what they were thinking. My only explanation (and I'm probably reaching here) is that my students are very close to me. Maybe they thought they were getting the same kind of gifts their parents would give them?? Or, this could just be me looking for a positive in all this. BTW, it wasn't just these two kids that upset me. It was also that only one child said "thank you." The rest just took the gifts like they were expecting them.
