If you don't already know, Donors Choose is a great way to acquire supplies and materials for your classroom. Teachers create a project, then spread the word about their project to family and friends, usually through social media. People, as well as businesses, are able to contribute to your project, showing their support for hard-working teachers everywhere.
Recently, I posted a Donors Choose project for 6 Ozobots, to teach robotics and coding to students in the SmartLab. With donations from family, friends, and the News Corps organization, my project was funded and the Ozobots are now being enjoyed in the SmartLab.
I encourage every teacher to sign up for a project! Start with something small and be amazed at the amount of people who want to give and support classroom teachers!!
Here is my Donors Choose page.
