How can I get kids to each bring one of these items in? They go through the stuff so quickly. I CANNOT afford to provide all of these things all year long. The supplies I brought in 3 weeks ago have been gone for over a week. I absolutely cannot spent $50+/month on tissues and hand sanitizer. The kids are so wasteful, especially with tissues. And there are globs of hand sanitizer on the counter. I have already bought paper, white board markers, pencils, crayola markers, posters, etc for the kids. I do not mind bringing in occasional supplies, but there has to be a limit. I am not teaching in a poor area. While there may be some kids who are economically disadvantaged, many more of the kids are well travelled, have iphones, Coach purses, and the like, not to mention spending several dollars at snack time each day. They can afford one $2 item for the semester. We are expected to have tissues, soap and hand sanitizer in our classrooms, but the school does not provide any. I have asked and asked for the kids to just each pick one item to bring in and nobody will. Suggestions?
