Yesterday was Ds class visit to the book fair. He was obsessing a little about it in the morning. I told him we would all go back on family night and he could get 1 book then, it seemed to settle him. I received a total of 3 calls from the principal because Ds reg ed teacher caught him stealing an $8 book. I was told that the teacher saw him put it under his shirt. He also had bought a $2 book. I explained he didnt have ANY money and was told we would go at night. Turns out he got a friend to give him $2 (friends lunch $, friend then charged his lunch) while on the morning school bus and he got another kid to give him $1 at the fair. After he purchased his book he sat down with both books (he said he just wanted to find codes on video games in the $8 book and try to remember them). I find that explanation possible but he hid the book from his teacher and was reading the other book when she came by. This kid is a very good liar, very very good, but his explanation sounds possible, he would do that. D has said that he didnt have it under his shirt but was sitting on it to hide it from her, he thought she would suspect him of taking it. I wish the teacher would have waited until he left the room, then there would be no doubt. Who would you believe?
