"Jill gave me some trash packs and I loved them. I put them in my desk and then I got up to go to lunch and when I got back they were gone. I looked in Jane and Jan's desks but they weren't there. I don't know what happened."
I asked, "Do you think someone stole them."
"Well it might have been Kay"
"Kay" is the autistic girl in my little girl's class.
I said, "Well I don't want anyone stealing from you, but I'm proud of you for being understanding about Kay. What did your teacher say when you told her they were gone from your desk?"
"She said to go back to my desk and she'd handle it later."
"What did she do later?"
"Nothing! But maybe they fell on the floor. I hope they don't get swept up off of the floor or something."
"Did you look on the floor? Were they inside your desk?"
"They were in my pencil pouch in my desk"
"Then I doubt they fell on the floor kiddo."
She is so kind hearted! And some kid stole something from her desk. I am going to talk to her teacher tomorrow. But I don't know exactly what to do or how hard to push it. The teacher should have done something about it!
