Since I have been reading blogs I've seen several posts about teachers getting projects funded. How cool. Books, technology, art supplies, whatever the teacher needs.

Earlier this month Katie from Dirty Hands and Lesson Plans wrote a post with tips to get funded. That prompted me to really check out DonorsChoose.

Last week I spent 1 and 1/2 hours creating an account and then writing my proposal. I want 2 iPods for my class, so my first graders can listen to books on cd without the hassle of a cd or being restricted to what I want them to listen to.

I was so excited to post on Facebook that I had submitted a proposal, but then I had to wait to see if I did everything right and it would be accepted. Late Saturday I did get an email from DonorsChoose and yep, everything is a go. Now to find some donors.

Check it out. Digital Books for my Young Readers

Any more tips?
Pin It!
