I have posted in the past about how much I love the opportunities that Donorschoose.org and Caring Classrooms provide for educators. Well, here’s another one! This past week, Caring Classrooms ran a contest to help projects get funded during the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation match. For every dollar donated during this time, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation would match that donation. This made the impact of donations even greater for classroom projects. I am so thankful and honored that Caring Classrooms selected my project to be featured on their giving page, guaranteeing full-funding. My project fully-funded that same day! My students will be getting more board games to use on “unplugged” days to reinforce their financial literacy skills.
These are the games I requested and will be adding to my classroom:
- CASHFLOW 101
- Charge Large
- Logo Party Game
- Monopoly: The Classic Edition
- Puerto Rico Game
- Ticket To Ride
Thank you so much to all of the generous donors on this project! I am honored and humbled by your desire to help my students. I can’t wait to get these games into my students’ hands!
