    never enough

    We get $150.00 a year for our room. If I order from the local teacher store they offer schools a 23% discount so I can get right around $190.00 with that. The school provides us with paper and one color and one black ink cartridge a year. I end up spending a lot of money. I make personalized memory books for each of my students so I end up using about 5 color and 5 black cartridges a year. I love doing it so I just don't add up the total. I've taught for 9 years and I am getting to the point of being tired of not being able to do lessons and things that I would like to do because of lack of materials. I have for thelast two years been trying to purchase enough balances, studnet Judy clocks, Multiplication wrap-ups, etc. I am sick of it so I splurged a little last year and bought enough balances and weights for my 5 groups. I will splurge a little more this year trying to complete some of the things that I need. I wish more parents would realize that I would love classroom donations. I would love to get something for my classroom instead of a Christmas gift for myself. We are not told that we cannot ask for things however I am unsure how to approach it tactfully!:o
