    Our PTO has asked each grade level in our building to decide on something they can buy for us - no dollar limit given. Many grade levels have asked for (and gotten) over $1000 of items! Sadly enough, second grade can't think of what we want. So what would you ask for if you were given that option? Ideas, please!!!

    Do you have LCD projectors, document cameras, teacher laptops, smartboards?

    Maybe you could ask for a gift card to Hobby Lobby or Walmart to buy supplies as needed.

    Every year, our generous PTO gives teachers money to spend, and this year I bought a class set of used digital cameras for the students to use. It took me several months on ebay bidding on used cameras one at a time, but I finally got 12 HP M525 cameras for about $30 each. We've used them for our grandparent interview project and several writing projects. The kids are so excited to use them and therefore very motivated to do the required writing.

    If you already have a document camera and LCD projector, you might want to get some inexpensive digital cameras for your students to use.

    (Aren't PTOs great? And so generous - love 'em!)

    How about useful things for your classroom like a rug, baskets to help organize your library or for student cubbies, a cool chair or reading couch from supply catalogs, a spinning library rack, etc.

    Also, you could ask for money to go a field trip you could normally not afford to go on, or have them pay for a special guest speaker or presenter. Maybe even an author could come visit your grade!

    One other idea is for the money to pay for your team to go to a seminar that is normally really expensive. I'm just thinking out loud.
