DonorsChoose Match Offers

 


If you are looking to get supplies for a project or activity but don't want to ask people for donations, donorschoose.org currently has 2 match offers that will get you $100 for completing each.  First you need an account if you don't have one you can start here: http://share.donorschoose.org/nBBrC. 

Time is very important when it comes to match offers as funding is limited.  The first match offer is CS First Unplugged.  The activity has videos to help students through the process of simple coding.  Once atleast 10 of your students completed the activity, you can submit a form about the activity and earn the $100.  I typically do the CS activities because they are easy for students to follow, this one has an activity on coding an emoji.  I know class time is tight so I put the information out there and then incentive with a piece of candy, music break, or something the student enjoys for a few minutes in exchange for doing an activity outside of classwork.  

The second activity is an hour long Professional Development(PD) on various topics.  They emailed this out, if you didn't get the email, I can forward it to you just let me know 314rscared@gmail.com.  After completing the PD you fill out a form and get the $100 along with a certificate for PD credit. 

These are 2 quick ways to get money for a project or activity that you are interested in completing without seeking out funds from others.

Pixel Art with Math Problems

    A pixel art activity provides instant feedback and some excitement.  My students enjoy doing these because they can see right away if they are doing the work correct and they also like to race to figure out the picture first.    Integer Operations Add/Subtract Pixel Art This is an online activity where students complete addition and subtraction of integers. The students will input their answer in the table and a color will appear if they are correct. When the students are finished they will have a picture.   Distribute Equations Pixel Art This in an online activity that has students solve equations with the distributive property. Several of the equations also require knowledge of combining like terms after distributing. Students solve the problem and type the answer in the table, if they are correct a color will appear. When the table is filled they will have a picture. One Step Equations Pixel Art This activity is done online in Google Sheets. The students solve each equatio

Pixel Art Activities

    If you are looking for students to practice multiple concepts at once with instant feedback these 2 activities would be great. The first activity hast students write the equation of a line given 2 points.  They start by finding the slope, then the y-intercept, and finally writing the equation.  Each piece along the way will color the picture if they are correct.  I like this instant feedback because my student tend to get frustrated if they do all the work and then when I check it we realize their slope was wrong so they have to start at the beginning again. The second activity is on percent, decimals, and fractions.  This activity requires students to convert between the 3 along with making the fractions mixed numbers.  This is great for middle school classes to practice.  My students tend to struggle with which way to move the decimal so this instant feedback helps them check their answers as they go.   Writing Equations of a Line - Baby Yoda Pixel Art Percent, Decimal, Fraction
