Check out how creating a classroom wish-list can go a LONG way!
1 session; 45 minutes per session
1.SWBAT (and families will be able to...) help support your school art program through this visual wish list display.
2. SWBAT advocate for themselves to aquire the supplies they want in their art room.
1. Display Area (in a high-traffic location of your school)
2. Construction Paper
3. Stapler/Push Pins
1. Brainstorm with students as well as on your own some common and basic supplies you need for your room( baby food jars, wipes, cleaner, sharpies, etc)
2. Have students create labels for the objects you need.
3. With students decorate your bulletin board with solid, bright colors. (maybe a pattern or school colors?)
4. Post up the wish list items.
5. As items are received place a heart over them which says " Wish Fulfilled! THANK YOU!!"
6. Change/Update as necessary.
This truly helped me collect basic supplies that would have cut my usual budget in half. You will find parents are SO eager to help they just don't know how. If a parent donates, I usually write a THANK YOU NOTE and put a little student made piece of art in it.
