On the last day of school before Christmas recess, the “Can Dos”are having a hard time paying attention in class. All they can think about is the long vacation ahead and, of course, Santa.
While most of the “Can Dos” are going to be home on Christmas day, some of them are going to be spending the holidays with family who live far away.
Hector is worried that Santa won’t know where to bring his gifts on Christmas Eve. He is going to spend Christmas at his grandma’s in Puerto Rico.
Jay has the same worry. Will Santa know to come to the Indian reservation where he is visiting his grandparents?
Annie is afraid Santa won’t bring her the new basketball she wants. She hasn’t been doing her best in school the past few months. Lately, her mom is always having to remind her to put her toys away. Annie is not sure if Santa always knows when children are naughty or nice.
Eulyn isn’t sure if Santa got the letter she wrote him last month. She just has to get the two-wheel bike she wrote him about.
Bobby is hoping that Santa will bring a gift for his mom. He didn’t save up to buy her anything, so when Bobby visited Santa at the mall, he asked Santa to bring a gift for his mom that he could say was from him. Santa didn’t say yes. He said we’ll see. What does that mean?
