Okay, so I will be the first to admit, I just haven't had time to get ANYTHING done today! I am attending a CCS conference for the rest of the week and that really limits my time at home to get anything done. SOOOOOO...I will share with you 2 tidbits of information.
1) I am absolutely positively ECSTATIC to tell you that my first grant at donorschoose.org has been FULLY FUNDED!! For those unfamiliar, I am working on getting my masters degree in Curriculum design and instruction. For my Home, School, and Community class we were required to write a grant. I struggled to find any wonderful grants to apply for and "settled" for Donorschoose.org. If you haven't heard you must jump on over and check it out! You can apply for a grant of up to $400 of ANYTHING (well almost anything) you want. Then donors choose to give towards your grant. ANYONE can choose to give. Even parents or other teachers or friends. Lots of cooperations participate as well. Anyways...long story short, I applied for a video camera and some accessories and in less than 2 weeks my grant has been fully funded. I will receive my items when the new school year starts!!!!! I will post more details as I get them!!
2) Check out this professional article I had to write for the same class. It is called First Day Jitters and is advice for new teachers.
I hope to have new TPT products and some point this week!! And a freebie of course!!
