I love the idea of Holiday Hope chests! I started doing the classroom economy this year with my teammates. Have you ever had your kids purchase things from your class store to put in the hope chests? I am thinking about trying it that way next year so every student can donate, even if money is tight in their family. I also have been looking for ways to teach the students that in an economy, many choose to donate some money to help others. Do you think it would work?
