DonorsChoose Giveaway!

Who doesn't love DonorsChoose? I have been so fortunate to have 4 projects funded to benefit my students. This summer I am working hard on gettig more projects funded that I know my future kinders will benefit from! 

 Short, Quick Summary of my Projects
The first project, "Listening Leads to Reading," is to obtain 10 personal CD players that will be used during my Daily 5 time for Listening to Reading. The second project, "Learning is More Fun with Playdough," is so my cuties can learn their alphabet and build words by "doing" and not some boring worksheet! This will also be used during Daily 5 time. Please take the time to read about them if you are interested in exactly what I my plan is for these materials. Also, if are not familiar with DonorsChoose, you NEED to be! Take a moment, check out the site. It is SUPER easy to write a project. If you have any questions I would be glad to help.

 Now on to the giveaway.......

    Dana- Welcome to DonorsChoose! If you have a facebook I strongly encourage you to search for giving pages. These pages give you some great tips to get funded and meet lots of other teachers! If there is room on their page, they will host your project as well!
