Yes I can believe it. My situations an AVERAGE of 2.00 per student
(unless I have more than 300 kids which I think will be the case). I think
Jill gets less than that. Here is what I am doing. I cannot ask for money
from the kids, but I can give them a list. I wrote a killer newsletter and I
will try to post it. I started with a letter to the parents followed the
supply list then with a sincere note to the parents and let them know my need
without offending the principal. (good politics) Next I put in my rules
followed by my consequences. (I did this with a slight sense of humor, yet
they get the message. I have been checking out the other classrooms and they
all have different rules. I think kids could easily tune the rules out
unless you make it interesting. Kinda gives them something to talk about.)
NEXT, I ended with a list of recyclables. It was 2 pages and I will copy it
on 1 page.
I will also have a giving tree set up in my room by orientation and will
pull it out as often as I can. I plan to do a fund raiser. It's gonna be OK.
