Parent Request For Back-To-School Supplies
I have found that parents are usually very willing to help provide back to school classroom supplies. Usually they just need an invitation to do so. Decorate your classroom door with a butcher paper or poster board tree. I laminate my tree so it can be used from year to year. Attach apples to the tree with items you would like to have parents provide. I have my tree all ready for back to school /meet-the-teacher night, so it is visible. Parents can then be invited to pick one or two apples containing items you need for your classroom. Duplicate the following apples to choose from, or print copies of the extra blank apples to make your own list of needed supplies.
