Wahoo! 3 of my projects were funded on Donors Choose and the packages from Lakeshore Learning arrived today!
If you haven't joined Donors Choose I highly suggest you do. I've had 34 projects funded over the last 4 years and have received thousands of dollars in free materials and resources for my classroom!
You just post a few paragraphs stating what materials you would like and how you will use them. If your project is funded you take 6 photographs of your students using the materials, have 5 students create thank you letters for each donor, and post a thank you letter yourself. Trust me, it is well worth it!
