Grants

 

Grants are one way to get money for your classroom. Often times, teacher shy away when they hear the word grant but that translates to a better chance for you and me.

Over the last few years, I received thousands of dollars towards classroom projects and professional developments from grants.

Virginia Professional Educators has a classroom grant and a professional development grant twice a year. The application is simple, open to non-members, and averages $300.  This is how I paid for a large amount of my Master’s degree. The fall grant deadline is quickly approaching so apply soon. 

The National Education Association has a large section of grants available. They have several pages worth of grants. Take a look and see if any work for your situation.

The Virginia Beach Education Association has innovative grants in the fall and spring. While the fall deadline has passed the spring application is open.  This grant has funded many classroom projects of mine totaling in about $3,500. 

Be sure to check your local associations and unions for similar grants.

Blooket Game

  A week ago my students kept asking to play Blooket so I looked into it.  Blooket is much like Kahoot and Gimkit but they earn money.  Blooket has several different game modes and the students LOVE IT.  Once a student has been eliminated they will keep playing to earn more gold which they can use to buy rare items.  Each week Blooket has a theme and those rare items can be bought for the week and then they are gone; the items include accessories or special characters they can play as.  My students will play for hours if we let them.  When we finish a game they are ready for another round.  Blooket has a FREE version which has been enough for my class but you can also upgrade to a paid version.  They have games that are already made or you can create a new game.   My students love the battle royale mode and the gold quest the best.  If you haven't given it a try I would highly suggest it.
