We love the back-to-school season: It’s a time for fresh starts, new beginnings, and, of course, much-needed classroom supplies. We've been excited about a new series here on the blog: classroom recipes. We’ll share “ingredient lists” of supplies you can order through DonorsChoose, inspired by real classrooms. Let’s see what you can cook up! Inspired by anything you see? Create a new project!
A few quick notes: All of the prices below are approximate and subject to change, depending on vendors and availability. Most of these supplies are available at multiple vendors, including some that might not be listed below. These are also suggestions for individual supplies, not actual bundles, so feel free to mix and match as you please.
3 Bottles of Hand Soap = $12 6 Containers of Disinfectant Wipes = $30 1 Carton of 10 Reams of White Paper = $75 2 Giant Packs of Sticky Notes = $16 5 Packs of Glue Sticks = $30 25 Boxes of #2 Pencils = $180 Electric Pencil Sharpener = $30 Total: $373
Where to shop for everything above: When you create a DonorsChoose project, you’ll have the option to add items from any of our long-list of vendors. Here are vendors that stock many or all of the above items:
Amazon Business, Blick Art Materials, DonorsChoose Featured Favorites, Grainger, Kaplan Early Learning Company, Lakeshore, Nasco, Quill.com, School Specialty, Staples, Teachers' School Supply.
Of course, with such a variety of vendors, the prices listed here might vary. We encourage you to shop around to get the best deals. And if you have questions about where to find any specific items, check out this guide to commonly requested items. Have recipes of your own? Share them in the comments or tweet them @DonorsChoose.
