Hi blog friends! Schools were closed this past Friday and today for sickness. The flu has hit our little district hard and there are so many who are battling the flu. They decided to close for a couple days since attendance was so down. So, today I've worked on prepping things for our 100th day celebration... it's supposed to be tomorrow but....it's currently snowing here...so it's not looking too good for celebration tomorrow.
Another thing I decided to work on today was a new project for Donor's Choose. I had one funded last winter for a listening center and was so excited!! We have gotten so much use out of the listening center. I tried another project last summer and didn't have any luck with it. I thought I would give it another try. One thing that is on my classroom wish list is a nice classroom carpet. So much magic and learning can take place on a classroom carpet. I currently have a small rug and it's gotten old, ratty, and dirty. And with 24 first graders it just isn't big enough for all of them. So there hasn't been a whole lot of circle time or morning meeting that has taken place on the rug this year. And that makes me sad. :( A nice, new, bigger rug is just what we need!! If you would like to learn more about this project you can check it out HERE. For the next week by entering the code SPARK at checkout they match your donation up to $100!! If you know someone who would like to donate please send them my way! I would so love to have this new carpet for my classroom so we can take magical learning carpet rides! :)
Do you use Donor's Choose?? Have you had a project funded? I would love to hear about it! :)
