With back to school comes a whole list of items we’d love to have for our classroom. It’s helpful if we are able to send home a suggested supply list but sometimes there are extra things that would be great to have donated to the classroom. So for meet the teacher night, make a back to school donation tree and ask for those extra things you wished you could have.
There are so many parents out there that are more than happy to help donate items for your classroom, they just don’t know what you really need. By putting out these apples, it allows you to really get the items specifically needed for your room.
Back to School Donation Tree
To make the donation tree, I took inspiration from the book, The Giving Tree. I created an anchor chart by drawing a tree similar to the cover of the book.
Then simply download, print and cut out the apples of items you wish to have in your classroom.
Tape them onto the anchor chart so the students or families can easily remove them to take home with them to remember to purchase the item.
In the download, I’ve also included blank apples that you can edit to add any additional items that I didn’t include. You can download the apples for free from my TeacherPayTeachers store below.
What are some items that are on the top of your wish list for your classroom?
See you next time!
