I am starting at a new school this year and unlike any other year will be given $150 in reimbursements. I usually spend a lot of money on supplementing my students who do not have school supplies. However, I think most of my students will bring their own supplies or they will be donated to them. Any ideas on what I should spend this money on? Maybe something I am not thinking of?

Spend it as you need it throughout the year. I get $175 and I usually only spend about $50 on supplies and stuff to get me started . I spend the rest as the year goes on.

My Suggestion

I don't know what to tell you to get, but I suggest getting something consumable. In my experience, if you are reimbursed by the school, it belongs to the school, so if you leave, you can't take it with you. For that reason, I'd make sure to only turn in reimbursements for items that are consumable.

to mention that I have to use it by August 24th. That's why I have a sense of urgency!

Go through the list of school supplies and see what they may have left off. Do you have a class set of dry erase boards? If so, do you need to replenish Expos for them? How about Post-It sticky charts? Lamination sheets? Avery labels? Crayola hardening clay?

That's how much we get at the beginning of the year and I have no problem spending it! I usually go to the teacher store and get some new classroom decorations. I buy items for my goodie bags for Back to School night. Are there any new teacher resource books you've been looking at? How about games or math manipulatives? If you have a used book store you could go stock up on some new books.

I would by timers if you don't have them. I got some last year so each student could time themselves or a partner on oral reading or math facts. We use them all the time. Think I got mine from Really Good Stuff.
