Students easily remember the wholesome gestures of their teachers for many years. Some teachers put in the extra effort to make the holidays special for their students. A second-grade teacher, Mrs White–who goes on TikTok by @teachingwithmrswhite–decided to go the extra mile to make holidays memorable for her students by giving them hats based on drawings she asked them to make. Her videos have become so popular that she has created a playlist containing all 4 videos showing off the different types of hats as well as finally giving them the hats.

In the first video, she starts by sharing how she gave her students books as gifts for Christmas. She shares, "Each year, I find some cheaper books. I buy a bunch of them." She then played a game with their students where they got to exchange their books with their classmates and that was it. But this year, the teacher's mother suggested an alternative idea and she decided to go ahead with that. She would give her students a long paper and they had to put solid colors on the hat.

Her mother would then put the students' designs on actual hats and she would give the hats to them as a gift. The teacher excitedly says, "And so I have their paper in the bag with their hat and they are gonna be so excited to see them." After she gave the paper to the kids, she discovered that many of them had followed a rainbow design similar to the example she had given them. She takes out a few of them and shows them to viewers, saying how she looked forward to seeing their reactions.

People loved the teacher's initiative and @krystal.grows.flowers said, "Aw, and now I wanna see every single one." The teacher obliged and posted a follow-up video showcasing the hats in more detail. Many of them had a rainbow pattern, while others matched it with their friends. She shares how only one kid chose to put a single color on the entire thing. One of the students' drawings had a speckled pattern on their cap and the teacher's mother creatively used speckled yarn to get the same pattern on the actual hat.

In the final video, which has gained a whopping 53.2 million views on the site, she shares her student's live reactions to her unique gift. The teacher is seated in her chair and asks her students, "So, do y'all remember when I asked y'all to color a picture of a hat and I said it was gonna be for a bulletin board?" She confesses that she may have "fibbed" and tells her students that she gave their papers to her mother, who incorporated their designs into actual hats. The teacher holds up a colorful hat and its corresponding drawing, informing them that they will be getting both.

We can hear screams of excitement from the students as she says this. The teacher says, "She tried to match the colors as close as possible. So, all of you will have a hat to wear to keep your little heads warm for the winter." Students would come to her desk when their name was called to get their hats and drawings. She concludes the video with a last bit of instruction for the students to thank her mother, Mrs. Bell.
