I will have tables instead of desks this year and want to do community supplies. I will collect glue sticks and pencils from the kids and distribute them into a tote for each table (4 totes altogether). if the kids brought special pencils with pictures or designs, i will send them home and keep just the regular yellow pencils for community supplies. I will send home crayons and crayon boxes for students to use for homework. I will then supply crayons for each table's tote. I will make up cute stickers for the crayon boxes that say "______'s Homework Box" or something to that effect. I plan on putting this infromation in my first letter to parents and also talking about it at back to School Night a couple days befroe school starts. Would this make you angry as a parent? Do you think the kids won't want to share? Am I wrong to make them share their special supplies? I just know that I will love not having kids rummaging through desks to find pencils and crayons! I did community supplies at the end of last year and I loved it! Opinions?
