I love teaching because we can finish a school year and start new. Now that we are entering the "start new" portion of the year, I love to think about what materials I want for my classroom that are outside the normal budgeting process. These tools are often things that encourage student creativity and allow them to build, grow and learn. Finding easy grant sources is a must. Two of my favorites are Donorschoose.org and MAC grants (from McDonald's). In both cases these grants are easy to fill out and reporting requirements are minimal. This year I would like to create some "maker space" stations that include Rasberry Pie computers that allows kids to code and create. If you've never looked at these grant provider, check them out.
