Making It Happen

 


If you have a dream activity, project, or just a need for your classroom donorschoose can help make it happen.  When we started virtual teaching something just felt off and sitting all day was hard for me.  I'm a very active person and I realized I missed standing up.  Through donorschoose I was able to get a stand up desk and it makes a HUGE difference.  For me, it make virtual teaching seem more normal.  

COVID has created many challenges in how I typically run my classroom and I was able to get supplies to still have activities at their desk.  If you don't like asking others for money, donorschoose has match offers which allow you to fund your project without asking others.  I typically use a match offer plus double or triple match days to fund my project.  A double or triple match day is mostly random but the site will tell you what days any money donated to your project will be double. This makes an easy way to take that $25 gift card you get from a match offer and turn it into $50.  

If you are new to donorschoose, start here.

If at any point you need help creating a project, picking resources, or setting up an account let me know.

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.
