We know this may sound a little crazy, but my class is tired of trying to keep our overhead transparency film in good condition. Our teacher has spent a lot of money this year so we can continue to use the overhead. But, she tells us that she is running out of moola! We are 27 fifth graders who LOVE to talk a lot and one way she engages us is by allowing us to "teach" using the overhead. I am sure we do not take care of everything as she would if ONLY she used the supplies. She begged our parents to buy supplies for her for Christmas, but NOPE! Our parents insisted she get clothes or decorations for her home. We would LOVE for someone to help us purchase some new overhead transparencies, markers, and cleaner. This would allow us to use our overhead continuously without our teacher having to find another CLEAN AND UNUSED transparency to use. PLUS, we get our hands quite messy when we clean the transparencies in the restroom sink with only water. We must tell you that we oftentimes do not clean them as well as needed so many are wasted. Again, we use our overhead on a daily basis. We all volunteer when we are able to go to the overhead to demonstrate a solution to a problem or in the morning we correct sentences. Our school is old and our chalkboard is not in good shape to use. That is one BIG reason why we rely on the overhead so much. PLEASE consider our proposal and know that these items will be used over and over again. THANKS for your time.
