I love when I discover new blogs! I just came across Katie's Blog, Dirty Hands & Lesson Plans.
Katie explains the uber cool program Donors Choose. DonorsChoose.org is an online charity that makes it oh, so easy to help students/classes in need through school donations.
Am I the only one who hasn't heard of Donors Choose? Check out Katie's post and tips to learn more about how you can get fabo items you need for your kiddos/class. After you see what she's received, you're going to want to get involved! The program is impressive and so is Katie...a FIRST year teacher who has been able to get so many of her programs funded. Lucky, lucky kids!
I'm going to research this some more and go for it...eventually! My mind is a-swirling right now just thinking about this!! Hence the Snooze you Lose...I'm not missing out on this fantastic opportunity! How about you?)
Although I am so not thinking of going back to school yet, I did just make my first customized Read/Write the Room for a teacher. I heart this activity and can't wait to get my own roster so I can make my own for my class. Although I offer four designed, she asked for a cute Peace symbol. So glad she did! Turned out great!
What's on your agenda today? Even though I've only been out of school for two weeks, I'm back in school this week for four full days of Responsive Classroom training. Should be fun! Have a great day, everyone!
