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.

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.
