December 2017 -

This month we read books about the gift of giving. We read the following books:

How the Grinch Stole Christmas and How MURRY Saved Christmas 

The grumpy, grouchy, Yule-hating Grinch plots to ruin the Whos of Whoville's Christmas. Can he steal their holiday spirit by stealing their holiday treats? Perhaps Christmas means a little bit more than just presents and candy.

When Santa is put out of commission, deli owner Murray Kleiner reluctantly agrees to take his place, putting a spin on Christmas that's all his own. And with the help of a pushy elf and an eager-to-believe young boy, Murray finds that even though he's not big enough to fill Santa's suit, he's got more than enough heart to get the job done.

I challenged the students to think of one person they could give a gift that would not cost any money. We had Christmas light bulbs to write down the idea. It was very heartwarming to see the spirit of giving in our students at Riverview.
