A Shout Out for

Thanks to some of my TPT friends, I found this great teacher website called Donors Choose. is an organization that allows people to donate to teachers in public schools in the United States.  The website was created by a teacher in 2000 and has since had $121 million dollars donated to teachers and their students.  Teachers create projects that fit the needs of their students and anyone can donate directly to their project.  Often other organizations will match donations dollar for dollar so teachers' projects get funded by direct donations along with corporate matching. 

I have been reading about all of the wonderful projects teachers are able to get funded through this amazing website!  What a great idea!!  This week, I decided to create a project for my own classroom and give a shot!  My project is requesting 4 Kindle Fire tablets for my classroom.  I have used my own tablet in guided reading and math lessons before with great sucess, but want to have a set so that everyone in the small group will be able to access the resource at the same time.  Feel free to check out my project !  Anyone who gives to my project by March 26  will have their donation doubled thanks to the Board of Directors! Just enter the code INSPIRE on the payment page and you'll be matched dollar for dollar.
If you are not sure, and want more information please feel free to contact me and I can share all that I have learned about the process.  The DonorsChoose website is also a wonderful place to go to gather inspiration and information!
