    I was surprised when my fellow co-teacher had a garbage can full of VERY USABLE crayons and 3/4 pencils. I said "Oh my GOSH! Someone threw all of these crayons out! " No, she said...I did. And you should too. We have plenty. We start the year out with new ones.

    I CAN'T do this. There are too many kids out there in need of supplies.

    So... Does anyone need my classes VERY usable supplies? (crayons, pencils that are barely used...after all it's a kindergarten...not too much use, though the erasers might be used on some.)

    I am thinking some Title One school - or some teacher who is really desperate for the money to replace her supplies might be helped here with these.

    I'll fork for shipping...just help me NOT to have to pour these in the trash (wish i would have saved hers as well).

    Why can't you just keep using the ones you have been, replacing as necessary, and save the new ones for when they are needed?

    If you are getting rid of them ship them to me. Fifth graders never have their pencils.

    My school donates gently used items to shelters at the end of each school year. The supplies are packaged up so kids in shelters will have some supplies to begin the next year.

    I have to buy everything for my class! I was lucky to get someone to buy me pencils. Send them to me.

    I'm with you McKennal, I hate waste. I've melted crayons down and cut them into thick bars and reused them. I hope someone will put them to good use.
