Thank you for your wonderful ideas! I have the most amazing website to share... www.donorschoose.org This website allows teachers to write simple grants asking for specific items. When your grant is funded by friends/family/students parents/random donors, the supplies are shipped directly to your school! In return, the teacher takes pictures, the kids write thank you cards, and they are sent back to the generous donor. I have had a Lakeshore listening center donated, many books on cd, math literature, a digital camera, and most recently 4 mp3 players... and I didn't spend a dime! This is an incredible resource ALL teachers must know about!
