In Clare's room, she has a classroom store where students can earn "money" throughout the year and buy certain things - erasers, stickers, pencils and more! Around Christmas time last year, she reminded her students that they could buy presents for their friends and family in the classroom store as well. Herman was checking out the supply and suggested to Clare that they buy a weed wacker to include as one of the items. "To do yard work?" she wondered. "For my mom's pits." he replied.
