asking parents to donate something without getting a million of the same thing.... open house/back to school night?
Set up a "Giving Tree" for Open House and/or Parent Teacher Conferences. Cut out some apples and write what supplies you need on the apples. An easy way for parents to donate to your classroom.
Hands are labeled with things that can be donated to the classroom by parents. Great idea for open house.
I use these cards to thank parents for donating to our classroom. I hope you can use them too!These Cards are Part of the File Below Classroom Wish List Selfies Set 2
Back to School night idea
Wish List Apple Tree for Open House. Saving this idea for next year...
FREEBIE-Cupcake Wish List- Open House/ Meet the Teacher Night
Open House-ask parents to lend a helping hand and donate some wish list items to your classroom.
I LOVE the simplicity and organization in this room. There is some color, but it is not overwhelming. I think that the trendy "cute" in the classroom can get to be cluttered and students are distracted by this in the end. GREAT IDEAS.
