I understand how obsessed students are about Shopkins. I have a six year old daughter who loves to play with them, however, I have had to put a stop on bringing them in the classroom. They are a big distraction with the students and even with the "keep them in your backpack" rule, students still play with them during class time. I am asking they no longer bring them to school for the time being. We can call it a "cooling down period". If Shopkins are found in the desks, I will take them and a parent/guardian will need to come and claim them. If it wasn't such an issue in the class, I would not take this type of measure, however, I am finding that some students are not listening to the lessons and are staring at the shopkins catalogs or playing in their desks instead. Thank you for your cooperation
