Donor's Choose

For my first post I thought I would write about Donor's Choose and it's amazingness! With the help of Donor's Choose I have been able to gain so many new materials for my classroom! Here are just a few pictures of all the wonderful resources that have been donated to my classroom through their website:
A new Projector and Interactive Pen system to make my white board interactive!


A new wireless listening center and new sturdy double-sided whiteboards!

An Anti-bullying program with many anti-bullying books!

Literacy Centers and Math Listening Centers!

Lakeshore Teaching Tubs to teach beginning sounds in Spanish.

These are just some of the amazing resources I have been able to receive from Donor's Choose!

Any teacher that is at a low-income school can make a project on their websites. They are always working so hard to get more companies to help match donations. Many of my projects were funded through Gap's Resources for college Prep 50% match. Don't forget to check out their funding opportunities in the monthly newsletter to see who is having a match offer! I feel very lucky that I have been able to enhance my students educational career by having more hands-on materials and technology inside the classroom!
