Clip to ScrapBook #45

I have a rule to not assign anything that I am not willing to provide all supplies if needed. I send a note home with the project for parents to let me know if students need any materials and provide a list of materials that I am willing to supply. There are some parents who will go over the top and spend $30 on a task that can be done with just paper and crayons. I'm not funding excess. However, I will provide any materials needed that are reasonable. I will give the child the option of working during breakfast, recess, when they finish before others, and bus loading, totally optional, but I will not take away my lessons to provide the time. This helps those students build a sense of responsibility that they aren't getting from home, because it provides them with the materials and the time, they just have to figure out how to manage it.
